How to grow lush peonies

Delicate, graceful and beautiful peonies traditionally occupy one of the first places in the ranking of favorite flowers. To grow lush peonies in the garden, you should choose for them open sunny places, protected from draughts.

In waterlogged and wet soil, peonies will grow sickly and frail. But the main thing is to apply fertilizer in time in the spring. How to make peonies bloom for a very long time - read in the article OBOZREVATEL.

This is not a very popular tiphack, but experienced gardeners say that this fertilizer is really effective. Peonies like soil with a slightly acidic pH level, so it is enough to feed them with an interesting fertilizer, which is in the fridge. We are talking about any fermented dairy product.

Experts advise taking kefir. Before fertilizing, the soil should be abundantly watered. In a large container, pour 5 liters of water and add 1 liter of kefir. Stir thoroughly and apply under the peony bush. It is promised that the effect will be fast enough.


This fertilizer is also suitable for:

  • hydrangeas
  • rhododendrons
  • lupines.

By the way, gray rot is especially dangerous for peonies. Cold, windy and humid weather contributes to the appearance of a gray plaque. The disease spreads quickly and affects almost the entire bush: buds, stems, and leaves. Gray rot is a severe disease for flowers, and plants can die completely. To prevent the appearance of peony rot, peony bushes should be treated with fungicides containing copper. How to properly apply fertilizers - read in the material.
