Answer: Hi Michael,
Thank you for contacting Yates.

Peony loves to grow in full sun but dislike hot temperature. Ensure the soil is well draining and soil pH is around 7. Feed regularly with potassium-based fertiliser to encourage flowers. Try Yates Thrive Natural Roses & Flowers Pelletised Plant Food. It’s enriched with Dynamic Lifter and has added nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to give your flowering plants the right balance of nutrients for their growing needs. Click here for more info:

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
