Hi I am led to believe that I can split this plant around this time of year to create more plants.

If so how do I do it?

If it's a big one that's going to be quite a task - but what you do is you cut any remaining leaves back to the base of the plant and dig up the root with a good sized rootball.  

The root will have several shoots - each healthy shoot will make a new plant.  Split the root so that each piece has a well formed healthy shoot  and plenty of root - depending on the size of the root you may be able to do this with two spades back to back, or you may even need a rip saw.

Plant each portion in a well-prepared water-retentive area of boggy soil and stand well back
