In the Green Mountains of
Vermont, what was once the old Frost farm , became
Frost Hill Farm Peony Nursery in 2000. 2015
was our last year selling potted plants and bare root
divisions and we now sell just cut peonies for weddings and other occassions. We have been working this rocky piece of
hillside for over 35 years and for more than 25 of those years have been liking the way peonies take to this ground. During the early years we have tried strawberries, raspberries, a market garden, dried flowers and cut flowers. Never full time, but just enough to know that working with a piece of land is a most satisfying. venture.
300 different varieties of peonies are grown here. From the classical full doubles that your Grandmother kept to the newest hybrid varieties. Singles doubles & Japanese are all well represented. We also have a small plot devoted to the newer Itoh varieties.
We are located 1.5 miles off of route 103 between Ludlow and Rutland, in Belmont Vermont. At an elevation of almost 2000' our bloom season is among the latest in the East and typically goes into the 1st week of July. Click onto directions at the top left of this page.
Call for volunteers!!
As you may know, we have gotten out of the plant business and have been increasing our cut peony flower capabilities. We hope to keep the display field for all peony lovers to visit in the future.But we need your help! Yup, we've gotten older and the workload from our real jobs means we are asking for volunteers to help with the weeding in exchange for cut peonies. Nice working conditions! If you would like to volunteer contact Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have an ongoing regime of cover cropping, tillage and plant based products that seem to work well for us in keeping things in balance here. Although we are not "certified" organic we are strong believers in the practice
