Love your peonies – but hate their short blooming season? This simple trick will have your peonies blooming all summer long.
Before your peonies bloom – when the buds are still tight and hard – cut them, wrap the stems in plastic wrap and place them in your refrigerator on their sides.
When you’re ready to have a blossoming peony, remove the bud from the fridge, remove the plastic wrap from the stem, and place it in a vase with room temperature water.
Your peony should bloom within 8 – 24 hours.
Peony buds will last in the fridge for 8 – 12 weeks.
