While each plant is a complete "plant
factory" in itself, with built-in nourishment, it is a good idea to mix a
quantity of Breck's Food for Bulbs and Perennials
with the loose soil at the bottom of your planting. This will provide
additional food without any danger of "burning." Never apply fresh or
half-rotted manure directly on bulbs and perennials.
As soon as the shoots break through the ground in the spring, repeat the
fertilizer application. Do not fertilize spring flowering bulbs after
they have started flowering. This tends to encourage the development of
bulb rot and sometimes shortens the life of the flowers. Summer and fall
flowering bulbs should be fertilized monthly from shoot emergence until
the plants reach full flower. The optimum pH range for bulbs is 6 to 7. A
soil test of the planting area is necessary to determine if lime needs to
be applied to adjust the soil pH. If needed, limestone should be worked
into the soil. For good bud development, work Breck's
Bulbs and Perennials Food
into the soil at planting.
