Still in the making is a directory of nurseries, societies and peony gardens. Takes longer than expected. Those that have grown peonies for a long time will be familiar with most specialized nurseriers, but for those only now getting into the game, it might be interesting to find more information where people can also share their experiences.…[Read more]
A recent article in Greenity, a Dutch trade journal, talked about peony growing. Quite interesting and as nearly all visitors to this site won’t be able to understand it as it’s written in Dutch, here’s our manual
Two years ago we found a mutated plant in one row of Rozella plants. Instead of the usual dark pink blooms, we found a plant with half of the stems delivering beautiful pale pink ones. Rozella being an ex
Some temporary issues have arisen (it seems to never stop). Hence the homepage is a simpler backup version until the magazine articles overview works fine again. The news updating process has been allocated even more memory resources as it seems it keeps asking for more and more perpetually and when not having enough slows down the site or crashes…[Read more]
Some site statistics for those interested. Statistics are collected through Google analytics since nearly one year, otherwise it’s difficult to know whether you’re reaching some people or not. One gets a lot of information from this, no wonder they make a lot of money from ‘targeted advertising’ (mention: we have no intention of showing adverts…[Read more]
Registration for the site seems to be failing currently. Can’t have been for a long time as less than three days ago Yuliya was able to register. We’ll try to solve it, if in the meantime you’d like to register for the site, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add you manually.
Still unable to solve the issues, but perhaps the current alternative isn’t too bad. It’s not finished, but the goal would be to have all news items together as images with the text appearing when hovering over it. Then after it the option to go to the more detailed options of nurseries, societies, species and so on. So less images in total which…[Read more]
Bonjour. L’événement ‘Festival Québécois’ était déjà dans la liste et parce qu’il deviendrait un double à cause de ça, je l’ai jeté. J’ai ajouté toutes les informations disponibles à ce moment, vous pouvez en ajouter plus chez les remarques ou me contacter directement pour changer quelque chose. Merci bien.
Site statistics for January. Some 1,600 unique visitors who in total visited the site 2,800 times. Bounce rate is the percentage of users that remain on the first page of the site where they arrive. Since most users arrive at the home page and all latest news is gathered there, it would seem logical that this will always be a very high number.…[Read more]
For most peonistas it will already be known, but in case you may have missed the latest major event in the peony world: what once used to be the Walhalla for any peony lover, but became a desolate place the last
Small update to the site. It is again possible to chat live. As the number of site visitors is continuing to rise, it does slowly become useful. It is only enabled when logged in, and you can only chat with those members you are ‘friends’ with, so you won’t be bothered by others. There’s also the possibility of group chats if you’re a member of…[Read more]
No, they won’t. The problem there is that Facebook doesn’t allow other websites to extract posts from groups, only public pages can be used (and #hashtags not at all). Thus the public pages of several peony societies and peony nurseries are placed together on this site on the homepage under their own section, which gives a clear overview I think.…[Read more]
Hello Yuri, I have only planted my first Early Canary a few months ago, so I cannot compare. But from the hand-written label, I think you’ve bought it from Hollingsworth Nurseries. It’s been a few years since I’ve bought peonies there, but I never got a mislabeled one from them. I think the semi-double form is not unusual, the image on the…[Read more]
