When it comes to growing your own peonies, Japanese tree peonies are the best option for anyone who wants to give their plants the chance to develop into flowers.
They’re also cheap, easy to grow and produce tasty fruit that you can eat or store in your refrigerator.
The only problem is, peonies don’t have to be in bloom every year to have an impact on the environment.
A growing season is not always an easy one to predict, but the Japanese peonies that we grew last year had a strong bloom and we had to move on.
We decided to plant the peonies on a farm with only two or three plants.
We kept them under the shade and planted them directly in the fields to provide some shade.
Once we were done, we planted them on a nearby hillside to provide additional shade.
With the peony plants we grew this year, we’re looking forward to growing peonies in the future.
