Product Description

Peonies are a cottage garden must-have and are becoming increasingly popular as both a cut flower and a specimen plant in a large patio pot, where they add romance and glamour to any setting.

These reliable perennial plants have huge, blousy flowers which fill the garden with colour and scent and can be brought into the home as cut flowers to brighten up the dullest windowsill.

‘Sarah Bernhardt’ is an outstanding herbaceous peony producing large, highly fragrant, rose-pink double-ruffled flowers on sturdy plants throughout summer. The plants themselves form an upright bush of dark green leaves, remaining attractive all season.

Often available as smaller plants, we have been lucky enough to secure some premium quality, large bare-root herbaceous peony plants. Sold by specialist Paeony growers and RHS Exhibitors at much higher prices, you can secure yourself a classic English border plant that will flourish and delight for 30 years or more - simply getting bigger and better.

Supplied as a single bare-root for planting in autumn or early spring as the soil warms, where they can remain in active but slow growth. They really are very easy to look after and make very fashionable cut flowers every summer.

What Is Supplied

Item 580033 supplied as:
Supplied as a bare root plant, shallow plant straight out at 5cm (2in) depth over the crown.

Plant Information

Top Tips

Peonies need winter cold and summer sun to produce flowers, so don’t plant the crown deeper than 5cm (2in) below soil level.

Care Guide

  • Despite the myths that surround them, peonies are easy to grow.
  • They need plenty of water as long as they don't get waterlogged, so plant your peonies in soil that drains well. Clay is fine as long as it doesn't stay wet.
  • Peonies flower at their best in full sun, but they will tolerate light shade.
  • Feed with a general fertiliser in spring, but avoid over-feeding with high nitrogen fertilisers.
  • To conserve moisture and suppress weeds, mulch around the crown with 5-7.5cm (2-3in) organic matter. Avoid covering the crown itself.
  • The flower stems may not be strong enough to keep the often-heavy flamboyant flowers upright and staking is often required.
  • It is generally best to cut the foliage to ground level as it dies back in the autumn to reduce risk of peony wilt.
  • Peonies seldom need to be divided or moved, but if necessary it should be carried out only in the autumn.

Difficult to tell how healthy a bare rooted plant will be - but based on other purchases I have no reason to doubt that it will be excellent

Bought from you before and to be honest I was a little disappointed with this one when I saw the size of the bare-root plant which was very small. It had tiny shoots on the top but virtually no roots as they had all been broken off (probably in transit). I have planted it out and hoping it will make a recovery. Time will tell.

As with most bare root plants it just looked like a stick when it arrived so I will have to be patient and wait for it to grow.

The delivery was good, but there were no planting instructions on how to plant it, leaving me wondering now if I did it wrong and have killed my lovely peony. That's not a good feeling, because although it was free, I still paid 7 postage which is in itself too much for the size and weight of the parcel. Please Garden Bargains you'll have to do better before I buy again.

if possible would rate them minus 10 stars. Offers look good in pictures but what arrives is pathetic.
Have tried several times but each time is the same. Complete rubbish.
Product:
Same as other items I have bought from them. Photos look good but what arrives is the tiniest twig possible. No hope of survival. Would mark them minus 10 if possible, Rubbish.

They show a nice looking plant - then what actually arrives is either dead, or such a tiny bulb it has no chance of survival. I have had yo make several complaints- then they want photos. Person packing plants know what rubbish they are sending out so why need photos!!! Absolute rubbish.
