When to move these plants around?

The picture is of a plant with lavender colored bell-shaped flowers. I once looked these plants up but have since forgotten their name. They come from smallish tulip-type bulbs. when is the best time to separate and relocate the bulbs?

    The best time to move is when they go dormant or when they finish blooming

    It looks like you have hyacinthoides. These would be traditionally planted in the fall, but it hard to remember where they are to move them then, so, it is probably just to do so when the foliage starts to decline.

    Thanks for the help. These flower in the early spring and the foliage has now been gone for a few weeks.
