It's a fallacy that you can't move paeonies. We  had a thread on this last year and lots of us had moved them with total success. 

It's true that they don't like being planted to deeply

Growing other plants through clump forming plants

Got it. Any bulbs will do the pushing but avoid large leafy ones, the leaves will swamp the underplanting. Crocuses are good for spring. and the smaller alliums for summer

It will be the low growing perennials that suffer if anything does, from lack of light.

Bulbs will push through whatever's there. Everything else needs its own space

clarky you've got quite a lot of invasive stuff there. Are you sure you want to add comphrey. The native comphrey, Symphytum officinale, is a huge plant that seeds around everywhere and the roots are deep. I have some in my wild garden but I wouldn't recommend it for a 'normal' garden.

But perhaps you don't have a 'normal' garden

I don't know if we were foxed Mark, I was asleep 

I should think you could do cuttings. What's the root like, does it look as though it could be divided

seed sowing for next year

I've got a few on order from Derry Watkins now. But only one I've never heard of, Eryngium ebracteatum. So that means I can place another order elsewhere
