    Mike Meizwang waits until they're in dormancy- he'll be doing his in a couple weeks.
    I always wait until right before they wake up...like...March.

    The main issue seems to be one of potential fungal infection. I've never had a problem (as he knocks on wood) but I can see where a new open wound would potentially invite something bad and the longer it sits open in cool, damp conditions probably increases the risk. When possible, I try to do my dividing a month or so before I expect new growth.
    All the best,

    probably..
    but it would be still be better to wait until spring and do the divisions then..
    then there is no need for the fungicide..

    Spring is definately better than autumn for doing divisions..

    I do my divisions in the fall as soon as weather cools off enough for me to get outside and mess with plants, but I'm in the south, its a little milder here most of the time. We're having our first frost tonight with temps in the 20's. Last week they were still in the high 80s. That's Mississippi for you!
