When Do I Fertilize Iris and Peonies? Iris Two Year Old Bed, Peonies Just Transplanted Roots. Thank You
Have you had the soil in the new beds tested to see what deficiencies might exist? It's usually not a great idea to try to correct for problems without first knowing what you're starting with. Your local Cooperative Extension office probably offers soil testing services.
That said, compost is a good safe thing to add to most beds. This helps provide some nutrients and aids with soil texture, by reducing compaction and helping with moisture retention.
