You'll have to ask Dove about the sulking of that one aym but I don't think so.

as Fairy says the idea that you can't move paeonies is a factoid.

Just like 'wild flowers need poor soil' and 'you can tell the age of a hedge by the number of species in it'. Everyone knows it, but it's not true.

I think you'll be OK at that stage of growth. I dug up a Molly the Witch is a far more a advanced state than that a few years ago. Stuck in  pot, How long did it stay in a pot Dove?

As far as I know she is quite happy in her new home

As Logan ans fidget say, as much root with soil as you can manage, don't skimp on pot size if it needs to stay in a pot for a while

Don't do it CraighB. There are loads of other plants with that shape that are well behaved
