And do not forget about drainage! As a drain, you can use pebbles, gravel, expanded clay. Drainage is needed to ensure that the peony roots do not go deep into the ground.
We take our seedling with a closed root system and slightly shake to "cheer up" the roots.
We plant a bush. It is important not to bury the peony so that it does not go to the ground.

PLANTING OF PIONES
The most favorable period for planting pions is the end of August. Plants will have time to take root, take root, and in spring they will release many shoots.
More light and freedom!
Peonies love light and freedom, so they must grow in the open. Ideal - solar lighting for 5-6 hours in the morning. And do not plant them in the lowlands: from the stagnation of water, the rhizomes can rot.
The loam with the level of acidity (pH) 6-6,6 is best suited. In too clayy soil it is necessary to make humus, sand and peat. In sandy - peat, clay and humus. In the peat add sand, wood ash and organic (all in roughly equal parts).
Pits are digging in advance
Pour a pit for planting in a week. The root system of adult plants reaches in depth 70-90 cm - that's the size of the pit. Be sure to make a drain - bottom on 15-25 cm fill with gravel, coarse sand, gravel or broken brick. Top with a bit of earth and fill on 2 / 3 with a mixture of fertilizers (100 grams of lime and potassium sulfate, 200 g superphosphate, 300 g wood ash per 10 kg manure or compost). Top the 1 / 3 with the soil.
FACT: Peonies planted in spring. DO NOT FLOWER IN THE FIRST YEAR. DURING ALL YEARS ONLY, THE ROOT SYSTEM IS GROWING, PLANTS JUST ARE NOT UP TO THE BOUTONS - THEY KEEP FORCE.
Do not deepen!
By the time of landing, the soil in the pit will mount. The rhizome of the peony should be dipped so that the upper bud is under the ground no deeper than 4 cm. Top with a soil that is slightly pounded.
CARE OF THE PIONEON FOR THE SEASON
In early spring, pour the earth around the bush with a solution of potassium permanganate (1 -2 g for 5 L of water). After the appearance of the first shoots, top up with a solution of ammonium nitrate (7 g per 5 L of water). The next feeding is during budding and flowering (5 g superphosphate, 4 g ammonium nitrate, 2,5 g potassium salt per 5 l water). Two weeks after the end of flowering peonies need phosphate-potassium fertilizer (5 g superphosphate and 2,5 g potassium salt per 5 l water).
By the way, mineral fertilizers can be alternated with organic fertilizers (infusion of the mullein 1: 10), and instead of the solution, sprinkle the moistened fertilizers along the furrow around the bush and fill it with earth. For mineral fertilizing, you can also use universal fertilizer Kemira Universal or Kemir Kombi. But remember: it is better to underfeed the plant than overfeed!
Do not overdo it with peony pruning!
Although there is a great temptation during flowering to pamper yourself or loved ones with luxurious bouquets as often as possible, do not forget that cutting more than half of the flowers can lead to their absence in the next year.
Moreover, when cutting, be sure to leave the above-ground part of the stem no less than on the 2 leaf, especially if you cut off the faded flowers. Otherwise, the plant will not have time to accumulate nutrients in the root system. After flowering, thin roots are formed, which are necessary for the bush to feed in the future. If at this moment to cut off the stems, the plant will come to winter weakened, which, of course, will adversely affect the flowering next year.
For the winter
With the onset of frosts, cut the foliage completely to the ground level, cover the soil around the bush with sawdust or foliage with a small amount of ash in a layer of 5-7 cm.
