Queda (what a great name!)

Why not do it immediately after spring bloom?  I've learned on this 
list that you can even dig and sell while in bloom, for immediate 
replanting.  Once they've bloomed, their fragility basically ends; 
and though growers don't cut down the leaves and dig and ship until 
fall, if the leaves and rhizomes are not butchered in the process, 
they can be moved/divided right after bloom.  Unless you're dealing 
with major heat at the time, I suspect.
