I have a paeonia rose, which I have had for a long time, can I divide it or what is the best way to propagate this plant. I have read two different versions, one is to divide up the plant and the other is not to touch the plant because it will not thrive. What do you suggest.

Hi, Vera,
You can divide peonies - but it is best to do so every 8-10 years or so. Best to divide in early autumn. It is true they typically resent the disturbance, and most likely will not flower the year after division, but if you clump is large and congested, it is better in the long run if you do divide.

Yes, Kathy is right - best done in Autumn. They do lift and divide very easily - the most important thing to remember is to always make sure you plant at the same height as it was in the ground. Being planted too deeply is the main reason for not flowering.
I will probably sulk for the first year but so long as you get the planting depth right - it should not be a problem.
