After moving a peony can I expect it to flower?

Sorry to say, peonies do not like to be moved, it may sulk for a few years, but then one may never know it may flower for you. :))))

Don't replant it too deep..Try to keep it exactly as it is and there is a chance. But they do sulk a lot.

If you have moved it with lots of soil and very little root disturbance it wont have noticed. 2 of the ones I had to move 2 yrs ago flowered the 3rd didnt.

I moved a large peony last autumn, the flower buds are beginning to swell now, as Pimpernel says, don,t plant too deep, the tubers should be just under the soil, or even a little exposed, Derekm.

Thank you very much . I'll let you know. We did move it with loads of soil on it so here's hopingπŸ’œπŸ‘

some seem to hate movement others are Ok. I've moved several in the past 2 years and about half flower the following year, others sulk for a couple of years.

As others have said the bigger the rootball, the less disturbance and the more likely it will flower soon

I moved one - a tree paeony - last year and it has lots of lovely flower buds on it now. However, I moved a herbaceous one two years ago and it hasn't been happy at all since...no flowers.
