Do you think it yet ok to move and mulch 2 young peonies? One had one bloom, the other none. Or better wait til end of next summer? We live by water, R. Lake.

Fall is the best time to transplant peonies. There are some guidelines for doing so...I'm attaching a link that will tell you when, how deep, where and all sorts of other information.
Be aware that when moving these plants it can take a few years for them to bloom, so it may not be anything to worry about if one of yours did not bloom this year.
