For established spring-blooming bulbs, scatter Bulbs Alive! over the soil in early spring when shoots emerge. When planting bulbs in autumn, add 5-7 lbs. of Bulbs Alive! per 100 sq. ft. of planting bed. Mix well, then plant. For summer-blooming bulbs, corms, tubers and rhizomes (such as lilies, tuberous begonias, dahlias and glads), mix Bulbs Alive! with soil, then plant bulbs. Apply again when flower buds form. Bulbs Alive! provides a rich blend of natural nutrient sources to get your spring and summer blooming bulbs growing vigorously. Long-acting Bulbs Alive! releases important nutrients steadily to the soil, enriching bulbs for spectacular, showy blossoms. When planting bulbs in the fall, give them the best possible start by adding Bulbs Alive! to their planting beds. The all-natural fertilizer will provide your bulbs with a boost, resulting in bright, beautiful flowers. An annual feeding keeps your flowers in peak shape year after year.
