To get your peonies to bloom, make sure you plant them in a patch where they’ll get 4-6 hours of direct sunlight, since peonies need plenty of light in order to bloom. You should also plant them no deeper than 1-2 inches, to make sure their flowers grow properly. Another important factor is to fertilize your peonies no more than once every few years and only if they look yellowish or spindly, since over-fertilizing can cause them to grow more leaves instead of blossoms. As your peony blossoms begin to wilt, cut off the dead flowers to the nearest strong leaf on the stem to encourage them to grow more flowers.
