The potting shed

Peony advice please

I have a peony in a medium sized pot but it has not flowered yet. It is in direct sunlight and the leaves look healthy. Any suggestions?

The pot has good drainage.

scrape an inch or two off the top of the soil and it should flower next year

What size is it Rebecca -  and what size is the pot? They can take a while to settle and start flowering, and need plenty of food and rich soil to thrive. If it's potted long term, it will need a soil based compost and not just multi purpose as that won't have enough nutrition for it over a long period. 

They often aren't happy in pots long term either. It depends on variety as to whether they're suitable as pot specimens - they're nearly always better off in the ground.
