I have this peonie tree and would like to know the best way to care for it, it was in the garden when we bought the house but buried behind lots of brambles

    They don't really need much looking after, but do need watering during dry periods, especially in autumn and early spring, when the flower buds are developing.  If you don't see any buds right now, give it a feed of fish, blood and bone fertiliser and plenty of water this year and it may decide to flower next year.  After watering well, it's always a good idea to put down a couple of inches of well-rotted manure or garden compost on the surface, to help keep the roots damp.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
