Question I have a question about peonies. Mine are

beginning to break ground. The area where they are located get full sun in the morning and shade in the afternoon. Do you think they will bloom this year? When do I fertilize them? What kind of fertilizetor should I use? I planted them 2 years ago this spring.

I live in Atlanta, Georgia. Thank you in advance for any answers.

Hi bbb173

We use a 1/2 & 1/2 mix of Fish emulstion & liquid Seaweed (Kelp) low in Nitrogen & high in Phosphorus & Potash.

The Full sun & complete food should get some flowers this season. Feed them every 2 weeks until fall, being an Ocean plant food you should have no micronutrient problems.

They seem to take forever, but it's worth it once they get going.

Happy Growing

Marturo
