How to keep peonies looking ‘fresher for longer’ using gardener's easy trick


As the peony season reaches its peak, gardeners and flower enthusiasts are eager to bring these stunning blooms indoors. 

With their colourful petals and fragrance, peonies add a touch of elegance to any floral arrangement. 

However, it can often be difficult to keep these flowers fresh for as long as possible. 

Fortunately, an expert has shared some simple yet effective solutions to extend the vase life of peonies.

Asta Foufas, the Technical Manager at Arena Flowers, shared how she keeps flowers lasting for longer than the typical five-day vase life.

Once the flowers have been cooled, you can continue to keep temperatures down by keeping them away from direct sunlight.

Foufas added: “A more practical way of keeping them looking fresh is to store them in a cooler location in your house and keep them out of direct sunlight.

“You should also change the water that the plants are sitting in to remove any bacteria, when when you go to put the peonies back into the vase, make sure to cut the stems at an angle to ensure maximum water absorption.”
