Slice (don’t cut) the stems at an angle. Gently push back the bud’s outer green covering and petals.
Put the peonies in a vase with cool water. Remove all foliage below water level.
Arrange according to style, solo or in a spectacular bouquet. Leave ample room for the flowers to fully open.
Change the water daily. Each time, add some flower food and trim the stem ends.
Keep in a cool place, with natural light. Sit back, enjoy the spectacle!
