When to Plant Gladiolus

I have always heard that the bulbs multiply underground, is this so or should I pull them up and replant them in the spring? I am not sure what zone I live in, but it is Sacramento, Ca. They are done flowering and the leaves are dying. I have always heard that they multiply underground. Can you please help answer my question?
