Peony Care and Handling 1 Unpack the fl owers immediately upon their arrival in your store. Check the buds, and determine bud stage. 2 Remove all foliage from stems that would be under water in storage containers. 3 Cut stem ends on and angle with clean knife or clippers, removing at least 2 inches of stem. Then, immediately dip the stem ends into an instant hydrating solution such as FloraLife ® Quick Dip 100. 4 Immediately place the stems into a clean storage container with at least 5 inches of bulb fl ower food prepared with cool water. 5 Let the fl owers hydrate for 4 to 12 hours at room temperature and away from direct sunlight. 6 When blooms have reached the desired stage of openness, place the fl owers into a fl oral cooler, at 33 F to 36 F, until ready for use or sale.
