Welcome to the 2021 Hidden Springs Flower Farm Online Peony Mail Order Catalog.
Orders for Fall 2021 start January 1st. Visit our Facebook page for updates and information. As has been the experience of many nurseries, the Covid stay at home restrictions have resulted in shortages this year. Because Hidden Springs Flower Farm is a grower of most of its products and not a jobber, who just buys from brokers and re-sells, when our crop is sold out, it is gone. In “typical” years, our stock of plants will last until mid August when we close to prepare for our Peony Root Harvest and shipping. Demand for pre-orders has been intense to say the least.
Shipping went through the roof for those items we purchase from specialist growers like the bare root fruit trees. Take advantage and purchase the trees bare root May 1 and 2 only at the nursery to save about 30% off the potted price.
The nursery will open again May 1st, 2021 with several hundred potted peonies to choose from with over 30 kinds not available online. Watch for info on our FB page on pre-ordering potted peonies, daylilies, shrubs, rare trees, and perennial plants for this coming spring.
Peony roots are shipped beginning the week of September 21 - October 5th as dormant, 3-5 bud, bare roots for fall planting. Peony experts recommend fall planting when peonies are developing a vigorous root system in response to the colder soil temperatures. Complete planting instructions are included with each order and on our website.
Peony roots can be ordered starting January 1st and will end July 26th.
Excellent growing conditions in the north help peonies develop the largest eyes when allowed to mature their buds in the field and dug in Mid to late September.
Growing them the extra few weeks to full maturity gives them a chance to go dormant and has produced larger eyes (buds) that develop into stronger stems the following spring.
Peonies grow best in USDA Growing Zones 3-8 which are cold climate areas with hard freezes for extended periods during the winter. We do not recommend growing peonies in zones 9 and 10 because it is too warm.
The plants are cared for by Brigitte and Harvey right here on our family farm. The fields are nestled in a valley between hillsides covered with majestic oaks, walnut and hickory woodlands.
As a small family farm all the work is done by Brigitte and Harvey. We are not a large corporation with no name, we take pride and responsibility for delivering a product we would like to receive ourselves. We hope you will take pride in growing the plants you purchase from Hidden Springs Flower Farm too.
