I started my perennial garden last year. I just formed a new bed and I have several plants that need to be moved due to that they have overgrown their current beds as well as several plants that need to be divided. When is the best time for me to do this?

The answer to your question depends somewhat on what the plants are, however most plants can be divided or transplanted in either very early spring or in early fall. Iris however are divided in mid summer and peonies are best moved in fall.
