Preserving Peony Blooms by Refrigeration
I have a friend getting married late spring and have promised peonies for her wedding. I have never tried to delay blooms before but have read that they can be refrigerated at a certain stage to bloom later. Has anyone done this before? If so, what stage is best to start? How long can they be left in the fridge and how long will it take to open when they're removed? Will they last as long as if they hadn'd been chilled afterward? Thanks for any info!
