2023 Fall Peony Root Pre-Order

Pre-Order Open Now

Our offering of premium quality, large peony roots comes from one of Europe’s premier producers of peony cuts and roots, Groot & Groot in Holland.

These roots are for fall planting; Groot & Groot has agreed to ship to Canada at the earliest possible shipping date (approximately Week 40).

We want you to be fully aware: due to upheaval in the world supply chain the past few years, we have experienced some delayed shipments, and there could possibly be later planting for our customers.  When our order arrives, we will be shipping out your order ASAP; within a 1 or 2 day turn around (with highest priority to Prairie & Northern customers)

You can prepare your planting site in advance if a delayed shipment is expected, and successfully overwinter your late planted peony roots.  We will provide you with further information on how to do this if needed.  We will provide updates to you in the event of any shipping delays.

All roots are Size 3/5 (# of eyes). Most peony roots on the Canadian wholesale market are Size 2/3 and fit up to 100 in a crate. Groot & Groot’s 3/5 peonies are huge and, packed 30-35 to a crate. In the case of peony roots, bigger is most definitely better. 3/5 plants establish and reach full production much faster than 2/3. Fall-planted roots also establish and reach full production about one year faster than spring-planted ones.

However, availability of fall peony stock is always extremely limited in Canada, so we’re very eager to offer a specialty selection for fall planting.  Any peonies you may find at big box stores cannot compare to these roots.

For fall 2023 we are planning to offer a selection of 17 varieties that will appeal to both the home gardener and the collector.   Prices will range from $26 to $400.

If you have a wish list of varieties that we should consider next year, please email us at bailey@boondockflowerfarm.com.

If there is a crop failure or supply shortage from Groot & Groot and your product is unavailable you will be fully refunded.

Canadian shipping only via Canada Post Expedited Parcel.  Shipping will be $29 across Canada.  Local pickup in Biggar, SK available.

Payment Options

We accept payment by e-transfer to our email address: bailey@boondockflowerfarm.com.   Please remit your payment promptly after submitting your order.
