Hola, this was my peony's 3d season and was its biggest and best. Now I have seed pods on the plant and do not know what to do with them. I won't throw them out but don't think that I want to germinate them and go through that long process. So what do I do? Xuling
I cut mine off to prevent wasted plant energy since they are not needed for propagation.
then they are disposable? One canot plant them into the ground and grow a new Peony?
Yes you can plant them but it takes about 3 years to grow.
The seeds will be ready to plant when the pods are open. Before that they will not produce plants. All pods even the very largest do not always have seeds in them.
