When Can You Buy Peonies in Melbourne?
The peony blooming season in Melbourne is typically from late September to early December. This is the time when these captivating flowers bloom in all their glory. If you're looking to buy peonies, this is the perfect window of opportunity to indulge in their beauty.
There is also a window for European grown peonies (from Holland and France) which are available to purchase from May till July.
When Should I Buy Fresh Peonies?
To experience the full splendour of peonies, it's best to purchase them during their natural blooming season, which aligns with Melbourne's late spring to early summer timeframe. Buying fresh peonies during this period ensures you get the most vibrant and long-lasting blooms.
When Can You Buy Peony Plants in Australia?
If you've ever dreamed of cultivating your own peonies, it's possible in Australia. Peony plants are typically available for purchase during their planting season, which usually occurs in autumn. This is the ideal time to start your peony garden and nurture these exquisite flowers to bloom in your own backyard.
Leave the planting to the experts at The Green Room. Shop our peonies online or visit our Albert Park florist today!
Can You Grow Peonies in Melbourne?
Yes, you can grow peonies in Melbourne, but they thrive in cooler climates with well-drained soil. To ensure their successful cultivation, it's important to provide proper care and attention to your peony plants. We'll share some essential tips below.
Tips for Growing Peonies in Melbourne
- Choose the Right Location: Select a spot in your garden that receives adequate sunlight but is protected from harsh, direct sunlight, which can cause peonies to fade.
- Prepare the Soil: Peonies prefer well-drained soil. Ensure the soil is rich, fertile, and amended with organic matter to provide the best growing conditions.
- Planting Time: Plant peony tubers in autumn, allowing them to establish their roots before the next growing season.
- Watering: Water peonies regularly, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
- Pruning: Prune peony plants in late autumn to remove spent foliage and promote healthy growth in the next season.
- Mulching: Apply mulch to the base of your peony plants to help retain moisture and suppress weed growth.
- Patience Rewarded: Remember, peonies take time to establish and may not bloom prolifically in their first year. Be patient, as your efforts will be rewarded with stunning flowers in the seasons to come.

- The Right Vase: Use a clean vase to house your peony bouquet.
- Hydration: Peonies are thirsty; keep them well-watered and maintain the water level.
- Sunlight Balance: Ensure they receive adequate light but avoid direct sunlight to prevent wilting.
- Lukewarm Water: Fill the vase with lukewarm water to encourage quicker blooming. Change the water every two days.
- Food for Flowers: Add flower food or a tablespoon of granulated sugar to the vase for longer-lasting blooms.
