I've not got any at the moment - in the past I found they did well very tightly potted in an earthernware pot in a very gritty loam-based compost with lots of crocks in the bottom.  They were kept outside in a sunny spot in the summer but brought into a cool conservatory in the winter.

I've got a paeony in a pot which will be planted out when the new bed has been created - hopefully it won't notice the move too much.
