Morning Jen 👋 best done late winter / early spring before new growth really takes hold but when you can see new shoots poking through as then you can see where to divide. In my experience you dont't have to be too precious and you and can either cut it or use a sharp spade to divide your clump. I'd leave 4-6 shoots in a section if you can and replant at same depth with the new growth just poking through the earth. Replant in lots of rich compost to help grow. Hope this helps 👋
