Feeding Bulbs

What do other GOYers do when it comes to feeding bulbs in containers that they wish to see in good bloom again next year? I have just slotted a few 'tablets' of slow release feriliser in my pots - is this good enough. It is their first year (i.e. they were planted last year in a decent multi-purpose compost).



Should just add I am growing Allium (May/June flowering) and tulips (some in flower now, some to come).

The fertilsir tablets should help feed the bulbs up for this year but I prefer to repot every year during the summer dormancy period.

Thanks. Think I will experiment, try a bit of both.
