Update: Peony Exhibit and shows for 2020
We wanted to inform all of the keen gardeners out there that would be attending the RHS Flower Shows and Garden Festivals around the country that unfortunately the decision has been made by the RHS that all shows up until the 30th June will be postponed until 2021. A number of other garden shows during April and May have also taken the decision to postpone or cancel shows.
We would suggest that if you currently have a ticket for a flower show this Spring and early Summer that you check with the organiser if this is still going ahead before making any travel or accommodation arrangements.
We are really looking forward to exhibiting our peonies at the rest of the shows which are still going ahead in the latter part of the year though. Please support these shows and come and see us. We are most importantly still growing and shipping our beautiful peonies all over the world so you are also able to shop online and buy our peonies. Please see our Coronavirus statement to see how deliveries are being carried out.
Maybe some social distancing, isolation and possible all out quarantine is the best time to make sure your garden looks amazing this year! Stock up on peonies and when the virus hits peak while all we have to gaze out at is our gardens, your peonies will be cheering you up with their gorgeous blooms and stunning scent.
Please see the RHS statement below and a link to the full statement here.
