For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.

Paeonia seed can develop a deep dormancy if allowed to dry. For best results, sow fresh seed in autumn in containers in a shaded coldframe. Within six weeks a root should develop, to be followed by a leafy shoot in spring. Grow on in well-drained fertile soil in a location sheltered from wind. Spring sowings may be made in containers and stored in the refrigerator for two months, then moved to a sheltered position to develop the leafy shoot. Protect from heavy frost the first winter, but avoid wrapping the plant as this can promote mould. Grow in deep, fertile, humusy moist but well-drained soil in full sun or part shade.
