    Peonies will be luxurious
    Not every florist knows how to care for peonies so that they blossom magnificently every year.
    During flowering, you need to alternately cut and remove all fading flowers. It is advisable not to let the petals fall inside the bush
    Decaying petals easily sit down gray rot and other infections that can spread to stems and roots.
    After the flowering, you do not need to cut out the bush entirely, as some do! At this time, flower buds are laid in the future, and nutrients are accumulated in the rhizomes. Therefore, a healthy abundant foliage - a pledge of flowering for the next year. I just cut off the remains of the peduncles with the seed boxes, so that they do not spoil the species and do not delay feeding on the formation of seeds. For the prevention of rot after cutting I spray bushes with a solution of copper sulfate.
    Also, after flowering I feed peonies with potash phosphorus fertilizer or ashes ashes (a liter ash pot on a bucket of water). The second feeding is done in a month, another one - the end of August. In the heat, I water the bushes once a week.
    Peonies have beautiful foliage. Green bushes easily fit into the composition of the flower garden as an ornamental and foliage accent.

    I like to alternate peonies with daylilies: they bloom at different times, while the greenery alone shades the beauty of the flowering of others. Finally, the aerial part is cut after the first frost. The base of the bushes for winter is covered with a layer of humus 10 thick. This will keep the kidneys and roots from frost, and in the spring will serve as the first fertilizing.

    Recipe for pion patients
    Last summer, I was upset by the peonies growing on the site.
    The buds were fastened, but quickly ceased to develop and shriveled.
    What happened to them?

      It is not excluded that your flowers were affected by gray rot, which usually leads to the drying of the bud and stem. There is a management for this infection. It is necessary to process the bushes of pions with copper sulfate or Bordeaux liquid. Effectively deal with this disease, such biochemicals as "Gliokladin", "Alirin" and "Gamair". They are usually used in a complex.

      When in the spring the average daily temperature is set at 10 degrees of heat, next to the roots of the 1-2-year-old plant, lay the "Gliokladina" tablet to a depth of 5-10 cm. Adults need a dose increased 2-3 times, depending on the size and the age of peonies. After two weeks, the foliage of plants should be treated with a solution of Alirin and Gamair (according to 1 tablet on 1 l of water). Weakened and diseased plants need to be sprayed several times. This procedure is best to repeat 4-5 once a season, and at the end of August - September, peony bushes should be treated again with Gliokladin.

    Even now, peonies with a closed root system are offered. Is it worth it to risk acquiring them?

    After all, these plants are recommended to be planted in August-September.

      Peonies with a closed root system are offered for sale not only in spring, but also throughout the summer. Almost all flower editions write that they are best planted in autumn, in August-September. And in the old European books dating back to the last century, authoritative pion experts say that it's as good to plant pions with an open root system in the spring as well as in autumn, most importantly, do not disturb old bushes, that is, you can not divide large pion bushes in the spring.

      According to our personal experience, peonies, left from autumn and kept in peat in the cellar at a temperature of 0- + 4 degrees, planted at the end of April and beginning of May in the cold ground, not yet warmed by the May sun, are well rooted, go into growth and nothing do not differ from the autumn planting. Peonies in containers can be planted in the ground at any time by the way of transshipment. The main thing is that the earth clod does not crumble.

    I help my grandmother to take care of the plot. She has many peonies. What to do with them in May?

      In one place a grassy peony can grow and blossom from 20 to 50 and more years. In the first decade of May, many types of pions form buds. At this time, plants older than 5-6 years need additional fertilization - make water infusion Mullein (1: 20), which was in the process of fermentation, with the addition of superphosphate (20 g), potassium sulfate (15 g), ammonium nitrate (10 g) on the bucket of solution. Pour fertilizer under each plant in a groove around the bush. Young plants can be fed with a solution of mineral fertilizers.

      With the appearance of the tops of the shoots, weeds are removed from the ground, the ground around the bushes is gently loosened at a distance from the bush in 10-15 cm, the rhizomes are protected, the earth layer is scoured in 4-7 cm to the bush. Shoots need daily watering, especially with the formation of buds and flowering.

    Peonies planted in the autumn. Everyone knows this rule. And it is better not to violate it. But one day it turned out that I had prepared a place for new varieties, and the delenki brought me too late. I did not dare to plant them, and besides the weather was so rainy!

    Belated delenki I wrapped and planted in pots, cleaned in the basement. In this prison they spent the winter. As soon as the soil thawed, I rescued my peonies from confinement and landed them. Fear that the frosts still happen, but despite them, the peonies took root, although they lagged behind in development in the first year.

    Often the flower growers, in order to decorate the flower bed, immediately after the peonies bloom, the leaves and peduncles are cut off to zero.

    This brings great harm to the plant.
    Faded peonies begin to lay flower buds and store nutrients. Cutting leaves, we deprive plants of photosynthesis. But the peduncles really interfere, absorbing nutrients to form seeds. They need to be deleted. Leaves must be cut only after the first frosts. If the plant is healthy, they can be used as mulch.

    I really like peonies. These are the flowers of my childhood. I remember when I was still very young, my mother always grew pink peonies. I could not look at them. Now these charming flowers occupy an honorable place in my garden. Apart from the pink ones, I spread white and crimson.
    Peonies planted at the end of August on a sunny, sheltered from the winds place, so that they bloomed magnificently. It is better not to have them near houses and trees, since near the buildings a spring drop from the roofs is dangerous, and under the trees they will not have enough light and moisture.

    Flowers grow well with slight shading at noon hours: the color will be brighter and the bloom will last longer. Soil should be neutral, without stagnation of moisture.
    When planting plants I sprinkle the roots with soil, compact, water, periodically loosen the soil. Withered flowers delete. Division of bushes I spend every 5 years.
    Before the onset of frost, usually at the end of October, the leaves and stems are pruned. If this is done earlier, the roots will not be able to gain strength for the next season, which means that there will be no flowering or it will be very weak. The place of planting is covered with lapnik. In winter I throw a lot of snow.
    In spring, peonies are fed with bone meal (300 g under the bush) and watered with ashes (1 glass on 1 bucket) 1 times in 3 weeks. Against gray rot I spray sprouts of pions with copper-containing preparations. In autumn the bushes are covered with humus.

    When is it best to plant peonies?

    To hide the new peonies planted this year by peanuts for the winter was necessary only at a high risk of a snowless and frosty winter (with a temperature below -20 ° C). For this you can use lapnik. If such a dry snap in the region of the country where you live is unlikely, then there is nothing to be afraid of. But to cover up the planting with dry peat layer of 10 cm was worth anyway. And it is best in winter to protect the young peony breathable top layer of soil mixture right in the landing pit.

    Growing peonies in my garden, I have established several reasons why they bloom badly ...

    Wrong seating arrangement. The bush is planted too deep or too shallow. From the upper bud to the soil surface, there should be 3-5 cm on heavy soils and 5-7 - on light soils.
    Unsuccessful landing site. Peonies love open, sunny places without stagnation of water. You should not plant peonies near the wall of the building and near the trees.
    The plant is young or small. If the plant is newly planted or its little girl has only 2 buds, then you should wait until the bush grows.
    Frequent transplantation or frequent division of the bush. This leads to depletion of plants.
    Lack of food. Buds appear, but not fully revealed. And for lush flowering peonies need to be fed before and after flowering - just at this time the buds of renewal are being formed, which are laid for 2 years before flowering.

    Lack of moisture. In the period of budding and after flowering peonies require good watering.

    Lack of potassium in the soil. If the soil is podzolic, peonies must be supplemented with potassium sulfate or calimagnesium.
    Too old bush. Perhaps, it should be divided and transplanted long ago. Do this in the second half of the summer. In this case, old bushes can not be divided for many years, whereas hybrid varieties are transplanted once in 4-5 years. To do this, a sharp knife neatly divides the excavated bush so that each division has well-developed roots and three buds. Then dig holes with a diameter of 50 cm and a depth of 60 cm. At the bottom, drain the drainage with a layer of 15 cm, then 2 buckets of humus or compost mixed with lime (250 g), simple superphosphate (300 g), calimagnesia (200 g) or ash 300 d). Place the peony in such a way that the buds when planted were buried at 5 see. And fill well with the overripe compost.
    If you follow these rules, peonies will thank you with a stunning bloom.

    Increasingly, peonies grown from meristem material are offered. Should I buy them?

    Earlier I cut pions immediately after flowering. But in this period, flower buds are laid. In addition, the flower stalk and leaves are needed for plants to accumulate nutrients for further development.

    And I still could not understand why my handsome men developed worse, lost decorativeness, faintly blossomed. It turned out that you should not rush with pruning. Now I plan this work with the onset of stable frosts. Above the ground I leave a stump in 20 cm (for winter I cover with sawdust).

      Indeed, do not cut the peonies after flowering. It is enough to remove faded stems, so that plants do not waste their nutrients on the tying and development of fruits. But the leaves are still involved in the process of photosynthesis and nourish the whole plant.

      But there are situations, more often in the southern regions, when the peonies planted in the open place begin to dry up after the flowering and twist the leaves, the decorativeness of not only themselves but also the flower garden as a whole decreases. In such cases, dry leaves, shoots, which are of little use, are removed, not waiting for autumn, or in its very beginning - September. The time of autumn pruning is prompted by the peonies themselves - when their stems fall to the ground. You can leave hemps 2 in length - then it will be easier to mulch them for the winter. As a mulch it is better to use not dry sawdust, but dry peat and pion leaves, if they are not sick.

    Peonies: transfer

    In mid-late August, I divide and transplant peonies.
    I prepare the pits with a depth of at least 60 cm, a diameter of 60-70 cm. Then I fill the 2 / 3 with a mixture of compost that has reparted manure and land in equal parts. Plus in each pit I add on 400 g bone meal and 200 g superphosphate. The upper third of the pit, where the roots are located, is covered with soil from the upper layer. I divide the bush into parts (each chunk is with 2-3 kidneys). When planting, the root neck on heavy soils is buried at 5 cm, on the lungs - at 7,5 cm. With a deeper planting, the peonies may not bloom.
