tulip bulbs don’t get larger

Zone zone 3..Beasley B.C. | Anonymous added on October 8, 2016 | Answered

My tulip bulbs keep dividing and don't get larger. What can I do? I planted large tulip bulbs a few years ago. They bloomed once then nothing. This fall I dug them up and found they were really small, with all kinds of bulblets attached. I have cleaned them up. Will dust them with flower sulfur, work in some bulb food and replant. What can I do to increase the bulb size and any pointers on growing the little ones would be great? Thanks.
