Peonies are coming up, and we are starting to put support rings on the doubles. The peony rings keep the heavy flowers from flopping after rain storms. It is much easier to insert the supports early before the plants have fully leafed out. Start by inserting the three legs in a triangle around the plant.Then thread the two rings through the loops on the legs. Hook the ring ends together where they meet.
