I have a two year old tree peony which has yet to flower. How can I en­cour­age some blooms?

EDP Norfolk - - Garden Guide -

Tree pe­onies can be slow to flower as they need to be well es­tab­lished to pro­duce blooms. As with most plants they have their likes and dis­likes. When plant­ing in the ground make sure the graft is around 10cm be­low the ground sur­face. Pe­onies won’t thrive in wa­ter­logged soil; choose a sunny spot away from cold where the soil is moist, but well-drained. Like roses, pe­onies are heavy feed­ers; give them a high potash fer­tiliser dur­ing the grow­ing sea­son to en­cour­age your plant to pro­duce flow­ers. I’m sure when it does it will have been well worth the wait.
