Most gardeners get great joy out of tending to a plant and enjoying the rewards of the efforts. Peonies offer beautiful color and fragrance, however, certain factors help peonies bloom.
Beautiful blooms need proper care
Peonies love sunlight, and if they are planted in an area that gets too much shade, this can affect the plant’s blooming.
The peony’s soil needs fertilizer. Peonies love potassium, and if there is a deficiency, the buds will be affected. Potassium can be added to the soil with a good fertilizer or even with wood ash from your fireplace.
Peonies are very particular about how they are planted. If a plant is too deep, it will not flower properly.
Peonies like to settle in and hate to be moved around. If you recently relocated a peony plant, it may take a year or two to see blooms again.
A frost that occurs while the buds are developing may affect whether the bud will actually bloom
