Ken Clare

It was with great sadness to hear the passing of Ken Clare this month. Ken was the owner of what he liked to call"The Ultimate Peony Superstore" also known as e was quite a legend in Candian Peony history.

He had the largest collection of peonies in Canada. He started growing them in pop bottles but later moved them to several area filds he was borrowing when his collection had outgrown his overwintering facilities. Pop bottle culture may have sounded a little odd to many peony growers but it was an innovative solution that worked very well.

Kens son Michael will be taking over The Ultimate Peony Super Store.

Condolences Micheal and family for your loss.
