The primary product that used to be available with this formulation, from my understanding, has been discontinued by the manufacturer.

If you plant tulips as annuals, as many do, you don't need to fertilize becaue the bulb already has all the energy it needs to bloom for one season.

If you want to perennialize your bulbs, feed them in the fall when planting with 8-8-8 or 10-10-10 fertilizer and again in spring when shoots emerge.
