Feed bulbs each Spring

A few years ago I was given a mixed bag of tulip bulbs by the head gardener at Pashley Manor in Sussex. They had been grown in the grounds during that Spring and were being discarded. If only ordinary gardeners could ensure a top quality display every Spring by planting fresh top-sized bulbs from Bloom's every Autumn! Dream on. Anyway, I planted the bulbs under a fir tree and they flowered for about two years until I noticed this Spring that almost all of them have disappeared.

I now realise that neglect is the cause. The ground is obviously too dry and I admit they have never been fed. This year I resolve to feed my bulbs when they are in leaf and water them if the soil is at all dry. In this way they will reward me with regular flowering and eventually extra offsets that can be grown on to flowering size if given enough space.
