If you've already removed the weeds and planted your bulbs you can treat the area with a corn gluten meal pre emergent herbicide which will keep weed seeds from sprouting. A product such as Preen, Corn Weed Blocker, Weed Ban, Dyna weed, Concern, Barricade, or Dimension is safe to use on the soil above your bulbs. Apply it now and again in the spring. That should keep your flower bed weed free.
