You seldom hear someone complain about a big, fragrant peony blooming in spring. You often hear, however, gardeners bemoaning the retail price of a new peony plant. The good news is that if you already have a peony growing in the garden, you can divide it to come by more plants. Dan Furman, a third-generation peony grower at Cricket Hill Garden in Thomaston Connecticut, and Fine Gardening's web producer Antonio Reis walk you through the division process in this video.

 

Now there's no excuse for a lack of peonies.
