Peonies sold on our website

All the peonies sold on our website are manually potted plants located in our nursery in Taivassalo.

Our annual selection is first on pre-sale during the winter season. Orders are sent in May when the plants have started to grow. In the spring and summer, we sell the same peonies with fast deliveries. In the fall, stems are cut down in preparation for winter.

We reserve the right to change the selection and prices during the season, but in general new peonies are added and prices updated only annually.

Only in specifically reported situations do we sell bare-rooted peonies. If the peonies for sale were bare-rooted it would be stated clearly in the product pages.

Delivery terms – Sweden / Baltic states

You can expect to receive your pre-ordered peonies towards the later half of May 2024. During the normal season, delivery time for peonies is max 2 weeks starting annually in May. We often send peonies from Taivassalo much faster, but delivery takes a few days more than for our national transports. Orders will be shipped from Taivassalo on Mondays for a quick trip across the sea during the weekdays.

The prices of our peonies include VAT at the Finnish tax rate (24%). All orders over € 200 have free delivery.

The delivery price (stated below and calculated automatically in cart) includes all the packaging costs of the peonies packed with special care for the international trip. Transportation of your order is handled by Matkahuolto in Finland, PostNord in Sweden and Omniva in Estonia. Delivery is to a pick-up point of your choice by the service provider. Delivery time after we ship the plants is 2 – 5 days.

Tall stems (over 55 cm) may need to be folded / cut to fit the package. In the long run, this has little effect on the vitality of the peony. We will send you a new email about the delivery when we start packing your order.

PostNord / Omniva will notify you when your order can be picked up.

Cancelling your order / warranty

The consumer has the right to cancel their online store purchase up to 14 days after delivery. Please contact us.

We follow the plant purchase safety condition recommended by Viherympäristöliitto (Taimistoviljelijät ry), according to which the growth start guarantee for our plants is valid for 45 days from the delivery date. A reclamation must be made before the end of this warranty period. ( taimistoviljelijat.fi/ostoturvaehdot )

We adhere to peony variety authenticity.

In the case of peonies, the blooming during the first couple of years can differ from the blooming of the final, full grown peony. The shape of a flower can be different and the shades can vary. Sometimes, however, the peony blooms in a distinctly different way than it should. If the peony you have purchased (with documentation of purchase) is not the right variety, we will replace you with a new peony of the correct variety, if the stock situation allows it. This replacement does not include freight costs, only the new correct peony plant. Please contact us.
