Peonies should be planted in a sunny location that is protected from strong winds. The soil should be fertile and well-drained, so you need to take good care of it, enrich it with fertilizers, and remove weeds regularly. Also, be sure to check the pH level. The soil should be neutral or slightly alkaline.

When planting flowers, leave enough distance between them, about 1 meter, so that they do not interfere with each other's growth. Also, make sure that you do not bury them in the ground more than 5 cm.

Features of peony care

Excessive watering is one of the most common causes of peony death. Waterlogging can lead to root rot. Heavy rains can also pose a threat to the plants, so you should protect the flowers during bad weather.

If you notice rotten or diseased petals, it is very important to remove them or even cut the flower off completely to save the plant. Also, do not forget to prune peonies in the fall after the first frost, after the leaves begin to die off naturally.
