The Q&A Archives: Sprouting Bulbs

Question: My bulbs are starting to come up in the country (Shohola,PA)... Anyway, I planted them with bulb starter, but should I use bulb starter again now that they are coming up? If so do you just sprinkle around the sprout?

Answer: No need! They're behaving just as they should. <br><br>You might apply some fertilizer after the flowers are done and the leaves are working to build a strong bulb (with enclosed flower) for next year. And yes, when the time comes, sprinkle the fertilizer on the ground around the leaves and maybe scratch it in with a small rake or trowel.
