Description

12:00 p.m. Demonstration "How to Divide Peony Roots"

Members will share good advice on how to dig and clean roots prior to dividing them. We'll show just how to make the cuts that will make it possible to expand your peony beds or share plants with others.

12:30 p.m. Business Meeting

Explore MPS plans for events in 2014. We're looking forward to educational seminars, garden tours and after this year's cancellation, our own peony show. Plus, an election of officers.

1:00 p.m. Root Auction Fund-raiser

We know autumn is the best time to dig, divide and plant peonies. We've again scheduled our fundraiser at the best time to acquire new peony color for your 2014 garden.

Our members generously donate peony roots from their own gardens and we also acquire peony roots from the best professional growers in the region. We will have a wide variety of color and flower form and a number of very hard-to-find collectible peonies. From lactifloras to hybrids to intersectional/Itoh's and tree peonies, we'll have something for everyone!

Minnesota Peony Society members will be on hand to answer peony culture questions. This fundraising effort helps sponsor all Minnesota Peony Society events like our educational day in February and our annual peony flower show in June. We also support public peony plantings at Arneson Acres Park in Edina, the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and the Governor's Residence Gardens.
