Best compost mixture for a peony in a pot? I thought JI no 3 with a little leaf compost and some grit? But mine is not doing very well. Think I need to repot it but would be grateful if anyone could tell me if they've got a peony thriving in a pot what type of compost it's happy in? Thanks



I had one in a pot for years in JI3 and leaf mould. But the pot was quite big. also the heat wont have helped yours.
if you only potted it this year it will still be settling in and you need to give it more time.

Seaburngirl - ahh yes the need to be 'more patient' theme again! Ha, Ha... I think the leaves going red has got me worried. Also the fact that it was gift from a dear friend makes me want it to do well even more!!
