I just spread some bone meal on all our bearded iris...I read somewhere that this is good for them. [flower]
Does anyone else do this? [dunno]

I use Bonemeal to plant all my bulbs.. Put it right it the hole and add water.. Helps make better roots, I understand....

It wont harm them to put it on. All plants neeed feed..Except Christmas cactus.. i read that it requires nothing in the soil..

When I plant my irises, I dig a hole, fill it with loose soil and add some Bonemeal, then I set the rhizome on top of the soil at ground level. I sprinkle lightly with soil and leave a bit of the rhizome exposed.

Can you add bonemeal after the fact? I didn;t use any and have irises and bulbs that need feeding, can I just mix some in the soil? Thanks.
