Spit Sisters // Margaret + Marianne

Margaret Johnson and Marianne Hooiser of Spit Sisters Farm cultivate eight varieties of peonies including classic favorites such as Duchess de Nemours, Nick Shaylor, Festiva Maxima, and newer cultivars such as Lemon Chiffon and lavender.

They employ organic practices such as the planting of red clover between rows, which provides a green manure to nourish the plants and attract beneficial insects.
