Peonies are a gorgeous and popular flower that add a touch of elegance and beauty to any home. Their lush, full blooms and delicate fragrance make them a favourite among gardeners and flower enthusiasts alike.
Peony season in the UK is relatively short, but the blooms are well worth the wait. In this blog post, we'll discuss what months peonies are available to buy in the UK & how to care for them to ensure you get the most out of your flower bouquet.
Peony Season in the UK
Peonies typically bloom in the UK from late May to early July, with peak blooming time occurring in mid-June, which is what makes them a very popular flower choice for Summer weddings! The exact timing of peony season can vary depending on the weather and other environmental factors, but you can usually expect to see them in flower markets and our store during this time.
Peonies are available to buy from our website where we offer delivery throughout London and the UK. If you fancy a trip to our store in Crews Hill, North London, you can shop our beautiful array of peony bouquets and take one home with you that very same day. At Your London Florist we source the highest quality flowers, ensuring that our customers receive the freshest and most beautiful peonies available.
Caring for Peonies
Peonies are relatively easy to care for, and with proper care, their blooms can last up to a week or more. Here are some tips for caring for your peonies:
- Water your peonies regularly: Peonies need plenty of water to thrive, so make sure to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
- Keep them in a cool spot: Peonies prefer cooler temperatures and do best in a location that is out of direct sunlight.
- Trim the stems: Trim the stems of your peonies regularly to keep them fresh and healthy. Use sharp scissors or pruning shears to make a clean cut at a 45-degree angle.
- Add flower food: Adding flower food to the water can help your peonies stay fresh for longer. Follow the instructions on our packaging for the best results.
In conclusion, peonies are a beautiful addition to any home and are well worth the wait during their short season. Our expert florists are on hand to create you a bespoke peony bouquet for yourself or a loved one, or perhaps you’d prefer to browse our range of hand-tied bouquets which we have lovingly put together.
