Q.Can I Replace Compost After Bulbs Have Sprouted Into Shoots?
I planted bulbs in the winter, but unfortunately in poor quality compost and now in early Spring they have shooted, but are not doing well. Can I dig them up and replace the compost, or is it too late for this year?

It will be too late to do so, now.
I would recommend adding a thin layer of compost as a top feed. This will supplement until winter, when you can till in compost to reset the bed.
