had only one flower this year and last year what do i do to improve my plant

On plant peonies



Peonies are herbacious plants and will die back over winter anyway. You can cut off the flower stalk to tidy it if you wish but otherwise I would leave it.
The tuber takes time to build up to a good size but the plant should improve year by year. If you want you could give it a feed of sow release fertiliser like bone meal just now but I don't feed ours at all.
