What went wrong with my peonies?
Cornwall, United Kingdom
I have a white one, planted 2 years ago & three new ones bought as plants in leaf in early May. The white one had only one feeble flower, with several other withered buds, & one of the new ones, Bowl of Beauty, also had one very poor flower. Solange is dying back, with only one surviving stem. I can't see the other one (& can't remember what variety is is!) as it's in among lots of other plants.
My neighbour had the same problem. We have sandy soil - is that the problem? However, my white plant did quite well until this year.
