Dividing can be done either in the spring or the fall with equal success, but I have found early spring is best. I wait until early growth is just starting so I can see where to best divide the root mass. Dig up the crowns and roots being careful not to damage the crown, then divide by slicing through with a shove. Replant, water well, and the divisions should establish themselves and grow lots of leaves and stalks. Enjoy!
