    The best time to divide plants is right before a period of active root growth and that seems to be spring for all the hardy CPs I've grown. A lot of other plants grow new roots in the fall and that's when you'd want to divide/plant them. Not only does it help ensure the plant is ready for whatever stress (hot summer/cold winter) is about to come, an actively metabolizing plant is much more able to ward off infection.

    I'll wait until I bring them home, in April.
