Peony won't flower!

Posted: 18/04/2013 at 19:56

I planted a peony about ten years ago now and it STILL refuses to flower fully. Two years ago it finally got a couple of buds for which i had great hopes but alas the ants made a meal of them and they ended up sticky and didn't open.I talked sternly to it and last year it made a feeble attempt to produce another couple of flowers,again they failed to impress.

I have tried all sorts of things to get it to flower.It produces a very fine display of red leaves but not much else.It grows close to a conifer and daffodils - I wondered if there was any connection there?

Sorry this is a bit long winded but i'd really love to have at least one peony in my garden,so if anyone can advise... 

Frogspawn 2013

Posted: 07/04/2013 at 11:34

I had frogspawn appear in my wildlife pond about three weeks ago.It's since been frozen and snowed on.I just hope it survives.Seems to have been laid earlier this year and with less noise.Last year the sound of mating frogs was amazing!

I'm in the northeast - Co.Durham.
