When we moved in three years ago there were a three large peonies: two in a slightly shaded bed, one in full sun. I love the colour of the emerging shoots but we don't get many flowers and they flop over in a mass of foliage.
Would splitting them increase the flowering? If I moved them onto poorer, shallow soil would that help redress the leaf/flower balance and stop them flopping so badly? It's pretty windy here - is that the problem? We are in Fife, five miles from the sea.
