I have a large and beautiful Peony. It is in a bad location and would like to move it. How can I move it and it not die. I know they can be very picky.

Peonies are very picky and will sometimes sulk if they are moved when they are actively growing so the very best time to dig and move a peony is in the fall, after frost has nipped the tops down and the roots are dormant. You can move yours now but it may not flower for a year or two. It won't die if you move it now, but it may look puny until the roots re-establish themselves so expect some wilting of the foliage. Best wishes with your peony!
