They like to be planted in full sun or semi shade and deep,rich moist soil.
Paeonias are a must have in the garden but do not plant them too deep or they will not flower, keep the woody roots and eyes at soil level.
Come spring time its best to mulch and feed to give them a good kick start to th season.
In autumn cut back the dead stems and they can also be divided in autumn as well.
They are fully hardy and don't need any winter protection
