After Planting

a)         Fix the crack: 1-2 days after the final watering, some cracks would be shown around the peony plants, so you need to fix the cracks with earth in time, or it will influence plants’ survival rate.

b)         Loose and weed: you need to loose soil and weed 3-4 times a year.

c)         Fertilize: every Oct., you need to implement hole fertilization or cyclic annular fertilization combining deep tillage. 100kg cake fertilizer per mu.

d)         Water: depending on the ground, water the peonies 2-3 times a year.

e)         Winter irrigation: in northern area, you have to make the winter irrigation on 10th Oct. to 10th Dec. every year.

f)          Clip: clip the peonies twice a year. Cut the dried-up branches before winter. Cut the new branches around the roots in spring to prevent nutrition possessed by the new branches.
