    Hi Jess there are mauny more experienced than me but I feed mine with general feed when they start to grow then tomato feed when I see buds

    Hi Jess. Paeonies should be fed in the Spring when the shoots are about 5cm (2 inches in old money image) and then halfway through the growing season. Use a general fertiliser - not one high in nitrogen.

    Jess is it a tree Peony  or herbaceous?. botb of them you feed  with a slow release fertilizer Bone meal is ideal. sprinkle it around your Peony. In early Autumn and then once again in the spring when you see shoots coming through.
