I want to plant glads and peonies for cutting and displaying. When should I start each to get them to bloom at the same time. I'm new at this and don't really know if these two flowers bloom at the same time.

You can certainly plant both glads and peonies in New Hampshire and they will both flourish. The glads, are of course, a 'summer only' corm. They must be dug up and stored over the winter, while the peony is a true perennial.

They will NOT bloom at the same time. Peonies bloom in the spring where glads are summer bloomers. (If you plant a peony this spring, you may get a few flowers next spring, but it will take a few years to build up the strength for a big show.)
