How you y'all support your peonies? I tried searching online and see everything from fancy contraptions to just homemade strings and sticks. One site suggested cutting a tomato in half and then tying strings for support. Thanks in adavance for your suggestions.

Hi I think the Grid support system is really good. As in placing the grid over the peony as it starts to grow then lifting it onto its support legs when the flower buds are about to open. That's the best supports I have seen without spending a fortune. It would not be to had to make it with some fresh willow stems or flexible wire

There is one with legs which could be raised as the peonies grow and flower.

I have seen tomato cages placed over the peonies when the peonies were quite low in height.

I have my peonies planted in between Nandinas in my front yard, and next to a fence in my backyard, so mine don't need any additional support. They grow beautifully every year!

That looks tidier than mine.

I've been using this square of weldmesh and some canes for the last twenty years.
