I have dug up all my dahlia bulbs. I have huge clumps of bulbs together. Should I divide them now or put the whole clump in peat moss and divide in the spring.

I'd divide in the spring as it will mean less open tissue for potential disease or rotting problems. Keep the tubers separate so they don't touch each other in a cool (35-45 degrees F), dry, frost-free place.
