What to feed daffodils with?

Bedfordshire, United Kingdom Gb

We like to grow daffodils in pots for our spring flower show.
I've been told I need to feed them as soon as the shoots appear. Does anyone know know what with and how often?



A bulb has enough energy in it for it to produce leaves and flowers.
Overfeeding will only make the leaves and stems longer.
If you pot in bulb fibre, when the shoots appear you can when watering have a very weak solution of liquid fertilizer.
