To feed or not to feed?

I'm no gardener and was wondering the other day if my pot of black tulips needed feeding?
Just found the above link so may be they do.......with minerals?
 
Really busy here with all sorts of exciting things.
Keep an eye open for a piece about my crochet felting in Designer Knitting, it is called
Vogue Knitting in USA.
Not sure when it wilL be avaliable here, around May time I've been told to look out for it,
but if you take the magazine let me know if it is on the stands with you?..thanks

I' ve been adding a few variations to block st this week....not sure if all the variations can be lumped together as block st. if I can, I try to find the original source of a stitch.
Victorian  origins usually for most stitches, but this version turned up in my research.....


Couple of interesting Block Stitch links to look at...

  2. Yes, pink tulips are gorgeous and they look especially nice in that plain white jug.
    No idea about feeding tulips though. I'm sure you could find some help on Google!
