peonies

Anonymous added on September 13, 2015 | Answered

I need to divide my peonies, but I won't be able to replant them right away. I'm cleaning out my flower bed and need time to do this. How long can I wait to replant them?

    While these plants can be stored short-term, it is advisable to get them in the ground as soon as possible. That said, if you would like to try storing them, allow the rhizomes to dry out completely (up to five days). Place them in a ventilated bag with peat moss, and store this in a cool, dark area. Check weekly for signs of rotting. Peonies can be stored this way for a month or so until you are ready to plant them.
