dividing miniature irises –not dwar irises

Zone Cleveland, oh | Anonymous added on April 30, 2017 | Answered

my miniature irises are about 18 ' tall, but have had very few blooms of late, and lots of green. They grow from bulbs, not rhizomes. Can I dig them up and separate then now, give some away, or do I have to wait til summer? I know how to do it, I just don't know when. Thanks.
