Winter Aconite

At last my mother’s orchid has flowered.
We have been watching this dowdy spike of buds for months and another had already died off and been removed without blooming. The plant itself has become rather unbalanced over the years so mibbe this year I will have to be ruthless and divide it then repot.
I read that I do this after flowering so by June/July we might have a plant each, and an empty big pot to fill?
