Please help.

I am just starting to see bud developement on my tree peonies.
Is now the time to fertilize?
What is a good recommended product to use?
Is it better to use organic such as cow manure, or compost?
Should I use a good synthetic one?
Please help me so I can get started asap.

Really appreciated!
