You don't need to add bonemeal if you don't have any handy. Feeding your plants with Miracle Gro is just fine. Daylilies can be divided when the clumps get large. I don't know how large your plant is now so I'm not sure whether or not it should be divided. I would just plant it as is with the intent to dig in in 2-3 years and divide it. This way each division will have a sturdy root system and lots of green foliage. Good luck with your new daylily!
