Hortiscope: Best to divide bulbs when they’re dormant

Q: I have three pots filled with amaryllis plants. I start watering the plants in late winter or early spring. After blooming, I put them outside for the summer. All the pots have side bulbs that I want to separate and repot. At the end of summer, the leaves die back, so I stop watering them and put them into the garage. They rest there until I start watering them again.
