|I understand that peonies do not like manure. I am going to plant a knock out rose near my peonies and use some manure to amend the soil, do you think this will be a problem.

|Aged manure is a good soil amendment and should be no different than using compost to amend your soil. The problem with fresh manure is that it contains urea and can be too hot for your peonies. As long as the manure is aged, it should be fine around your peonies. If it is fresh, allow it to sit in your garden until next spring (to age it) and then use it to amend your soil. Enjoy your garden~
