Sternbergia lutea division?

Some years ago (5 or so), I planted Sternbergia in a bed with light filtered shade (river birch that drops a lot of leaves in late summer) from April-Sept, but bright full sun otherwise.  It's done quite well, however, the necks (and a good part of the full bulbs) are above ground level.  I also believe the clumps could be divided as there are at least six growing points where I planted each bulb.  My quandary is thus:  I see that the barest tips of the new flowers are emerging now above the lip of the bulb.  Would now be a good time to lift and separate or do you recommend that I wait till the foliage is almost gone in spring ?
