When to Divide Giant Allium?

When should I divide and replant my giant purple alliums? There are 3 to 4 flower stalks coming up in each place where I planted only one.

After they bloom and the foiliage ripens off.
Late summer.

I divided the orginal Globemaster I planted a couple of years ago after several stalks came up. Everything bloomed fine last year, but this year the *original* bulb has shot up some puny leaves and not much more. Any thoughts? should I dig this baby up?
