How to arrange my Peonies at home? 

Bringing the beauty of Peonies into your home is a delightful experience. To create a stunning arrangement, start with a clean vase filled with fresh water. Trim the stems at an angle to encourage water absorption, and remove any leaves below the waterline.  Don't forget to change the water every few days to ensure the longevity of your arrangement.

Pro Tips for Prolonging Peony Perfection:
Peonies may have a short season, but with a little care, you can make them last longer. Keep your Peonies away from direct sunlight and heat, and trim the stems regularly to maintain water absorption. Placing them in a cool room will also help extend their freshness. As a trusted Wellington florist, we recommend these tips to our valued customers to ensure the Peonies' longevity and beauty.
