When should I fertilize tulips next?

kris2001(6a - s.e.PA)April 11, 2009

I planted tulip bulbs last Sept/Oct. They are ready to bloom , and have buds. When planting I fertilized with holland bulb booster.

When should I fertilize next? Now or after blooms die?

Also will my bulbs multiply themselves??!

Fertilize after bloom. They'll fade or dissappear before multiplying, especially if planted in an area where they'll get summer watering.
