    If they flowered last year, you may be expecting too much from them unless you fed them after flowering.
    Once mine have flowered, I plant them in the garden and let them naturalise.

    The flowers should eventually shoot out from the centre of the bulb at the bottom between the leaves,the flowers will be smaller in their second year. If they’ve been forced before I usually plant them in the border & hope for flowers,it’s a lot of work for the bulb when it’s been forced.

    Ive never used baby bio,the label should give info,I usually give flowers in containers seaweed fertiliser or tomato fertiliser. Bulbs in the ground never get anything,there’s enough goodness in the soil to keep them going.
