Can I move these plants?

Hi, I need to move these peonies from the shade to a new border, and also plant these crocosmia (sp). 
Is it too early to do it now, should I wait a few weeks or can I crack on?

    Ideally, you'd wait until the peonies have died right back, but if they were mine, I'd do it now. They're nearly finished anyway, in terms of foliage. Just have the new spot ready, and plant at the same depth, as they don't appreciate being too deep. You can cut the foliage back by half too if you want.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
