Dividing irises and day lillies

My irises and day lilies have not been divided in many years. When is the very best time this fall to perform this task? And I would appreciate any tips for this project, as I have never done this before. Thank you!

Mid-September is a great time to divide daylilies and irises, so get out there this weekend! For details on how to divide, check out our story on dividing perennials at http://www.bhg.com/gardening/dividing-perennials/
