It took so long for things to spread out that I didn't leave them the room the needed now I've got problems. Please guide me through the process of fixing this problem.

Ok the mums are where I want them. The yellow sedum is creeping over them. When can I move the sedum and how do I get it without killing it so I can put it where it still needs to cover. What I am planting is the ditch bed beside the street. It slopes down at a pretty good gradient and was covered in weeds and some grass when I moved in. So there are still areas of it that I want the ground covers to grow into it's just that they have decided to move in a different direction than I had planned. I'd like at least 2 inches clear around each planting, or maybe it should be more?

There is a bunch more but I figure I'll do one overcrowded plant at a time. thank you for any suggestions/advice.

I think you can move the seedum as long as it's not flowering and you just have to try and be as careful as you can. That said won't seedum root if you stick it in water? Just in case you break it while moving it. I'd water it pretty good right after I move it. Wonder if the seedum is always going to grow in the direction you don't want it too. Maybe that's where the soil and sun is the best for it.

It's on a slope I suppose it follows gravity. But that's just a guess.

Thanks for the heads up on when to move it.
