Peonies

 

1. Harvest peonies in their bud stage when the green sepals are separated, revealing the petal color, and the buds are at least an inch in diameter.

2. Wrap bunched stems in clear plastic and seal the ends to prevent the flowers from drying out.

3. Use rubber bands to store bunches of five or ten peonies.
