    In December, I had to dig a grassy peony. Now he is in the basement. Maybe it can be made to blossom among the winter? What is needed for that?

      Pick up the container by the size of the root coma and fill it with a loose, nutritious substrate from turf ground, humus, sand (2: 2: 1). Plant the bush so that after planting and watering the buds of renewal were at a depth of 1,5-2, see the Container with the pion put in the basement (at + 2 degrees) and keep the soil moist. Enter the room two months before the planned flowering. But before that let three days the plant stay in a cool place, so that the root lump warms up gradually.

      And then put in a room with a temperature of + 20-22 degrees. When the sprouts appear, the plant must necessarily be pre-incubated up to 10 hours per day (phytolamp at an altitude of 50-70 cm). Otherwise, shoots will grow weak. You do not need to feed. Flowers, depending on the variety and temperature conditions, will appear in 40-50 days. If this happens earlier, flowering can be slowed down by lowering the temperature of the air with the beginning of the bud opening up to + 12-15 degree.

    I want to divide the overgrown peony of grassy, ​​but I heard that it is impossible to plant it in its original place. Although the gazebo is very convenient. Can you somehow disinfect the soil where the bush grew, and one de-lenku from the old peony back to its original place?

      It is not necessary to transfer the rules of annuals to powerful perennials. In this case, no crop rotation is necessary. However, if you dig a peony affected by a root rot or a ring virus, then putting another peony on this place will be a mistake. If you share a healthy plant, just update the earth, making it nutritious, and safely plant the piece in its original place.

      Do not follow any rules irresolutely. Any task in the garden has many choices. And you can never tell exactly which one is right. Criterion is only one-good development of plants. If you do everything not according to the rules, but your pets are prosperous, then you have found your approach. And I would not disinfect the soil - it means killing all the soil microflora.

    Grassy peonies: we dilute classics with modernism
    My collection of these plants began with classic pink flowers. Among them was an unbeatable favorite, a multiple winner of exhibitions and one of the best life-threatening cut varieties - peony Sarah Bernhardt.

    Late in the evening, with large and very fragrant buds. Then varieties with ruby ​​flowers were added - Kansas and Karl Rosenfield, white - Festival Maxim, Shirley Temple.

    It would be desirable, of course, and novelties of selection. And here I could not resist the Coral Sunset, which in English means "coral sunset". Variety is early, flowers blossom in June. But the petals are changeable, like chameleons, - eventually fade to cream, and then - and gentle-yellow color.
    Immediately put them in a nutritious soil: black earth + garden land (1.2).
    At the bottom of the holes I fill the drainage of the broken brick and rubble with a layer of 5-7, see p. I put on it the 1-1,5 buckets of the bovine manure.
    After planting water.

    Through 2-3 in the spring, immediately after the snow falls, I bring ammonium nitrate or carbamide under the bushes (according to the instructions). When the top layer of soil dries up, scatter around 1-2 a handful of ashes. During budding, I water abundantly.
    In early May, I feed the first time with the universal fertilizer "Terrasol" (according to the instructions). The second time he - in late May or early June, the third feeding - two weeks after flowering.
    Regularly water the peonies throughout the summer, loosen the soil and remove the weeds. For the winter, I mulch with the rotted manure, and also the crushed stems of Jerusalem artichoke (acts as a syderat).

    I divide and replant peonies only in the autumn, in the beginning of September, burying buds on 3-4 cm (not deeper), otherwise there can be no flowering.
    If the shoots accidentally drooped from the recurrent night frosts, I do not hurry to cut them - after a few warm days they will rise themselves as if nothing had happened.

    Peonies with Japanese coloring

    Ito hybrids were obtained by the Japanese breeder Toichi Ito from crossing herbaceous varieties with treelike varieties to create plants with yellow flowers. From grassy peonies, Ito-hybrids inherited frost resistance and ease in reproduction, and from tree-like - strong stems with flowers of delightful form and the most incredible shades.
    Ito-pions grow better in the sun or in the penumbra on well-drained soils without stagnation of moisture. Many people want to plant them under trees, but this should not be done, otherwise the plants will compete for water and nutrients.

    The plants are planted in spring and autumn, the most favorable time is September. A pit with fertile soil and deoxidizers (ash and bone meal) should be prepared in advance. The rhizome is buried at 3-5 cm, the kidneys are at the same level. In the first two years, Ito-peonies do not need top-dressing. Starting from the 3-th spring, the bushes are fed with nitrogen fertilizer, and when budding and during flowering - phosphoric-potassium.
