Peony root harvest update. Record rain and flooding continue to slow our harvest with a total rain for September at 14"as of September 21. An additional 2-4 inches are expected trough Thursday and rain again on Friday. Brigitte and I are digging between rain events but the fields are fully saturated with harvest at 50% of our normal rate. When we finish digging and regular orders are all filled we will reactivate the web site for Last Chance Orders.
We expect to complete shipping within our normal shiping dates with all regular orders shipped by October 15th. All the shipping slots are filled for the week of the 19th for colder growing zone 3, Alaska and the high mountain areas of the West. It is just Brigitte and myself doing all the work so if we are responding to calls or e-mails on shipping dates we will be diverted from digging and sending orders since we can not do both at once. Thanks for your patience.
Our regular ordering season ended September 10th. Peony roots available after we fill regular orders will be listed on the Last Chance Sale page.
Please see the page link in the left hand index of pages for more information. Shipping to Alaska begins September 19th.
Like our facebook page for colorful photos and up to the minute news on Hidden Springs Flower Farm Nursery. The nursery in Spring Grove is now closed for the season while we harvest and ship peony roots.
Peonies are shipped between September 19 - October 15th as dormant, 3-5 eye, bare roots for fall planting. Peony experts recommend fall planting when peonies are developing a vigorous root system in response to the colder soil temperatures. Complete planting instructions are included with each order and on our website.
Peony roots can be ordered from late November through September 15th or until our field harvest is complete.
Excellent growing conditions in the north help peonies develop the largest eyes when allowed to mature their buds in the field and dug in Mid to late September.
Growing them the extra few weeks to full maturity gives them a chance to go dormant and has produced larger eyes (buds) that develop into stronger stems the following spring.
All the peonies that we offer are grown right here in Spring Grove, MN.
Peonies grow best in USDA Growing Zones 3-8 which are cold climate areas with hard freezes for extended periods during the winter. We do not recommend growing peonies in zones 9 and 10 because it is too warm.
The plants are cared for by Brigitte and Harvey right here on our family farm. The fields are nestled in a valley between hillsides covered with majestic oaks, walnut and hickory woodlands.
As a small family farm all the work is done by Brigitte and Harvey. We are not a large corporation with no name, we take pride and responsibility for delivering a product we would like to receive ourselves. We hope you will take pride in growing the plants you purchase from Hidden Springs Flower Farm too.
