Answer: Sometimes bulbs that are planted at the wrong depth or very late will not flower as expected the first year. Another possibility is that the bulbs were not large enough or mature enough to bloom. For the best results, allow the foliage to grow and fade naturally before removing it. This process enables the bulbs to rebuild their strength for the next year's display. You might also provide them with a top dressing of a little bit of complete fertilizer such as 10-10-10 in early spring and again in the fall when they should be growing again underground. I hope you have a better display next year.
