last year about this time we replanted a paeony after moving house there is plenty of growth but no sign of any flowers,did we do something to upset it as I hear they are very tempremental.



The most common reason for peonies failing to flower is that they have been planted too deep. Although a good sized hole should be dug for it and filled with compost the top of the crown of the plant should only be about 2 inches or 5cm below ground level.

thank you flag so much,we will look into this and hopefully solve the problem perhaps for next year now.

The other thing about paenies is they hate to be disturbed, and may well sulk for a couple of years or more and refuse to flower after the move.
