Will my newly planted peony flower this year? I was gifted this peony 'Doreen' for my birthday back in March & planted it up straight away. I have planted it shallow but after initial growth of foliage nothing has happened. Would it like a feed or do they take a while to settle? I have got others in garden that are flowering. Thank you.




They take age to settle in, don't expect flowers this year

Ok. I will leave it be and hope for flowers next year. Thank you.

Even next year would be optimistic. My experience with peonies is that they take their time to establish and will not bloom for years if they are planted too deep. But they have pretty leaves too.

How do I say thanks?
