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
  • Garden shears
  • Mulch
    1. Cut down the peony stalks, and get rid of them. Leaving stalks in your flower bed may spread diseases to next years’ peony crop.
    2. After the first freeze, cover the plants with 2 to 4 inches of mulch. Acceptable mulches include straw and pine needles.
    3. Remove the mulch once peony shoots appear in the spring.
