Answer: Peonies grow new roots only in the fall, so the time to move them is in the early fall. Replant at the same depth as it is growing now, not deeper or more shallow. Also make sure to take as much of the rootball as you possibly can and replant immediately. Then water as needed to keep the soil evenly moist like a wrung out sponge, not saturated/sopping wet and not dried out, until it freezes. Good luck with the move.
