Spring blooming bulbs can be dug and divided now; summer blooming bulbs should be dug and divided in the fall. The best way to dig bulbs is with a garden fork. Dig carefully so you do not damage the bulbs. Divide by snapping off any little bulblets attached to the parent bulb. Replant the bulbs about twice as deep as they are wide. Best wishes with your project!
