Q.Secondary Buds of Peony

Anonymous added on May 27, 2012 | Answered

My Peonies are 6 years old and flower each year. But all main buds that bloom, also have 2-3 buds on the periphery, which grow to about 1 cm in diameter, but never bloom. The buds appear simultaneously, but the central one grows to maturity–secondary do not. Should these be kept or pinched off?

You can try adding more phosphorus to the soil, either with a phosphorus-rich fertilizer or bone meal.
