Before Harvest

Peonies early in June a few days before harvest

WE BEGIN THE HARVEST WITH THE EARLIEST VARIETIES EARLY IN MAY AND WE FINISH WITH THE LATEST VARIETIES VERY LATE IN JUNE. Harvest dates can vary a week or more depending on the season.

We ship our peonies in heavy, double sided boxes each with 100 stems. Most varieties are packaged in 10 stem bunches. The exception is tree peonies and some yellow varieties, which are packaged in 5 stem bunches. We leave plenty of leaves on the stems and we pack carefully to protect the buds and maintain freshness.

We have adopted cultural practices that foster optimal growing conditions and insure excellent soil structure. We space plants widely and keep weeds under control at all times. We have first class refrigeration facilities. Our coolers operate at about 33°F – 34°F and are designed to avoid dehydration.
