This follows on from the the question about tree peonies posted a few days ago. The photo shows the plant I am about to plant into a border. It has been in JI 3 all year for 1 year. Should I add nutrient to the planting hole as the leaves look a bit yellowy to me?




Hi, as we're approaching autumn, I wouldn't use any fertilizer this year, the weather we've had, the plant probably thinks it's already autumn, and is shutting down accordingly, next year just use a general fertilizer such as growmore in spring, Derek.
