I planted some bulbs back in November.Just recently I was advised to use bone meal for my new bulbs that I had purchased. So my question is how should
get the bonemeal to those bulbs I planted in Nov. should I wait till they come up before I put down any bonemeal?? thank you.

Bonemeal is typically added to each planting hole when you first plant your bulbs but it can be used as a top dressing in established bulb beds, as well. Simply scratch 1-2 tablespoons into the soil around each bulb when it first begins to sprout in the spring. You can repeat the application after your bulbs have finished blooming. Hope this clarifies things for you.
