1. Oh I'm envious!

I still have 10 inches of snow in my yard. Sorry....can’t answer your question. Peonies!

5. Best wait,... if you fert they will blast awake and grow,...

.... then if a snow/cold snap comes the plant can't shut back down into hibernate. Wait a month then fert when no chance of freeze/snow, start with a mild/weak solution.

6. Since it was 23 below zero in my Vermont village a couple of days ago

you’ve given me renewed hope! Thanks so much and enjoy your peonies. They’re such beautiful flowers.

7. WOW! Gotta check ours!

Crocus up, and daffodil greens, and CAMELLIAS opening! (Calvert County.)

I/we don't fertilize, I don't at least, and don't think my neighbors do either.
