Orchid lady, most perennials are tough and hardy.
Dividing plants is always sensible.....increases stock and keeps them healthy and vigorous.
For autumn perennials this year select what you want....maybe asters, for example.....and get them asap whilst small and grow on in pots for few weeks. planning longterm is good. Dahlias will look great still in autumn so getting a few tubers....quite cheap at moment......and potting them up now will provide large plants by mid summer onwards.
