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.
