Pruning sedums
We have recently bought a house here in Indianapolis and have 4 overgrown sedums (I think they are "Autumn Joy", but not sure) in a border right by the small front porch. I have taken out the dead wood, and wonder which wood be best. Do I wait until april and then just split them and replant somewhere else, or can I cut them down to about 1 foot now and hope they will get a better shape and not be so tall and straggly. They haven't been tended in quite some years and need help, maybe fertilizer

The Autumn Joy sedum will die back to the ground level each winter. If they are extremely floppy, you can cut them back to the ground after they die down this fall. Or you can leave the stems until late winter and cut them back at that time. Late winter or early spring is the best time to divide and move them. If they still get too tall and floppy, you can pinch back their growing tips when they're 6 to 12 inches tall to force branching and sturdier growth.
