When do you fertilize the bulb bed

3 months ago

There have been times where I've dug up bulbs and they were smaller than when I bought them.

I presume the growers have -juiced- them up for nice big fat bulbs in ideal growing conditions, etc.

So when putting down some organics fertz, what is the timing of.

Late fall when roots are starting to being. So that the organics (may slowly work it's way).

Is there such a thing as water runoff, with the heavy spring rains.

Or do you put down fertz, around the time when blooms are up, hopefully also when some of the heavier rainfall is done, so that the fertz is there for the next 2 months or so before the leaves brown out.
