I think that you meant that your peony seeds are not germinating. If so, then it is likely that they have not had the sufficient cold-warm-cold-warm cycle. They need to be exposed to fluctuating temperatures in order to germinate. You can put them in the refrigerator for two weeks, take them out for two, put them in for two, then take them out to plant. Then, you should see germination.
