The Q&A Archives: Transplanting Peonies

Question: I just replanted some peonies and they look like the are about to die. Is there anything I can do to help them? Feed them? And how long should it take before they take off? Will they start spreading right away?

Answer: From my experience, peonies don't really like to be transplanted. I dug some up and transplanted them to my new yard a few years ago, and they were really set back. They're just now looking more settled. I would hold off on fertilizing your peonies until they start actively growing. Keep the soil evenly moist. You'll just need to be patient, I'm afraid.
