Planting Conditions

Ensuring a splendid display of Peony 'Buckeye Belle' involves thoughtful planting. Plant at the right depth, with peony eyes no more than 3cm below the surface to promote abundant flowering. Improve drainage in heavy soil by incorporating sand or grit during planting. Choose a sheltered spot to guard against strong winds, preventing the top-heavy blooms from swaying. Additionally, consider using a protective cage to support the stem when the large blooms are in full splendour, ensuring these captivating Peonies stand tall and elegant in your garden.

Watering & Feeding

Caring for Peony 'Buckeye Belle' involves a mindful approach to watering and feeding. Choose a sunny or partially shaded location with free-draining soil. To enhance drainage in heavy soil, we advise incorporating sand or grit during planting. Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry spells, providing gentle hydration without waterlogging as Peonies dislike wet roots. For feeding, apply a balanced fertiliser in early Spring to support robust growth and vibrant blooms. With this thoughtful care routine, your 'Buckeye Belle' Peonies will thrive, revealing their large captivating blooms and adding a touch of natural elegance to your garden.

General Care

Tending to Peony 'Buckeye Belle' involves a little attentive care. We suggest removing fading flowers promptly and, in Autumn, trim back the plant after the foliage has withered. Keep an eye out for potential challenges, such as leaf and bud eelworm, swift moth larvae in the soil, and be mindful of susceptibility to virus, honey fungus, Verticillium wilt, peony leaf blotch, and peony wilt. By addressing these considerations and removing issues swiftly, your 'Buckeye Belle' Peonies will be free to flourish, radiating long-lasting beauty in your garden while remaining healthy and vigorous.
