Peonies can sometimes be a bit temperamental when it comes to flowering. It can take 3 or more years for a young plant to become established enough to flower. Peonies will also produce the best blooms in a sunny position and won’t perform well in heavy shade. I’d also recommend feeding your Peony with a high potash fertiliser in the growing season as they are heavy feeders. It’s also worth considering the soil it is planted in as a wet soil will eventually cause rot and the plant will struggle – peonies like a moist soil but well drained. If your peony is older and you’ve recently divided it, this could be the reason as they take a while to settle down again after division.
