I want to move some free growing peonies to a pot; (just bloomed and petals destroyed by thunderstorm)




Well you can do it if you must, but paeonies hate root disturbance and may sulk for some years and not flower if you do disturb them.

I agree Bamboo mine sulked for years.

The best time to move them is in late autumn immediately after they go dormant. Don't plant them too deeply - the resting growing points should be above soil level
