How to Get the Best Out of Your Peonies?

Posted on 6th July 2021

Peonies – those delightful flowers can brighten up any room and add charm to any event. If you have peonies on your mind for your wedding, you need to handle them with care. Right from the time you get them from your florists to the big day, here’s how you can get the best out of your peonies.

Choose Your Peonies

Peonies are a popular choice for summer or spring weddings. They come in a variety of colours such as pink, red, white, yellow, mahogany, burgundy and coral. They also have different sizes when fully open.

The fragrant varieties also make an exquisite impression.  Peonies are great for floral bouquets in teardrop or the classical style, wedding cake embellishments, table décor as well as elegant flower wall arrangements.

Caring For Your Peonies

Peonies have a short life span – only about 5 days. So, you need to give them some extra care to get the best out of them on the main event day.

When your Peonies arrive, cut the stems at an angle and remove any extra leaves on the stems. Take a vase filled about two-thirds with fresh water. Add flower food to the water. You will get these from your flower shop in Newcastle.

Gently, massage the peony buds to help them open faster. Now, place the peony stems in the water and place the vase away from direct sunlight. Keep an eye on your peonies and you will get them in their full bloom for your wedding.

If you think you will be too busy preparing for your wedding and won’t have the time to get peonies to bloom under your care, talk to your florists in Newcastle.
