Yes just break apart the root ball. I have heard the time of year matters but I do it first thing in the spring. Just as the plant starts to get some small leaves, dig carefully and be careful not to damage the roots as much as possible, I use a knife or sissors.

Divide established bleeding hearts in the fall. Dig up, divide and replant the bleeding hearts 10 to 12 inches apart. Place a plant marker where bleeding hearts are planted to avoid disturbing them during the dormant season.
