The Q&A Archives: PEony plants

Question: I relocated my Peony bush about 7 years ago it used to bloom great and then stopped when i transplanted it someone said it was planted to deep so I raised it and still no bloom ao I raised it again and the plant growns but does not blossom what can I do to get the pretty flowers back

Answer: It's true, if you plant a peony too deeply it will refuse to bloom. Raising it up was a good idea. However, peonies resent being disturbed and will not bloom for a year or two each time they are moved. So, you've set your plant back by 4 or 5 years. You can be patient with it or you can replace it. Either way, you should have flowers by next summer.

Best wishes with your peony!
