@kerimyth Hi, how much sun does your peony get? How deep was it planted? They don't like to be planted too deeply?

@mikethegardener I planted a peony 2 or 3 years ago and finally it has one flower bud! Keep meaning to lift it in the winter in case it's planted too deep.

Good Morning @mikethegardener! To be honest with you nothing has been planted very deep in this garden because the soil was really heavy, dig down 12 inches and it is all clay!! We bought a David Austin Kiftgate rose to climb up the massive conifer we have and we were quite shocked to find just how much clay we have, the Kiftgate was a big one in a pot so we had to do a lot of work to the soil around where we were planting it before putting it in, so No! The Peony wasn't put in to deep, I don't
