The Q&A Archives: Is it too soon to feed my bulbs?

Question: Still trouble shooting here. Last weekend I used the Bug-geta Plus by Ortho. You stated my bulbs may need feeeding. Is it too soon to feed after using the the Bug-getta? I had a real bad bug and snail problem.

Answer: You can feed your bulbs now if you'd like. Feeding with a slow release or time release product will supply needed nutrients all summer long. I use a slug and snail control called Sluggo. It is iron based and any product not consumed by the pests will degrade into simple iron, which will add nutrients to your soil.
