How to Winterize Peonies
Make sure your beautiful peonies grow next year as healthy as they were this year by preparing your flowers for winter.
Things You’ll Need
- Cut down the peony stalks, and get rid of them. Leaving stalks in your flower bed may spread diseases to next years’ peony crop.
- After the first freeze, cover the plants with 2 to 4 inches of mulch. Acceptable mulches include straw and pine needles.
- Remove the mulch once peony shoots appear in the spring.
