Good morning,
How can I seperate my peoney so I can move it to another part of the garden?
Do I need to dig the whole crown up or can I move part of it like when I seperate hosta?
Thank you

First, you will have to wait until next fall when the Peony is going dormant but before the ground freezes. Then, you will have to carefully lift the whole plant and gently pull/cut it apart so that each new piece has several eyes. Then replant the pieces.
