Do you really need to feed your soil, if it's in good condition, it will replenish itself, I don't usually feed the borders, but maybe I will put a bit of bone meal around this year. I usually just make a lot of compost through the year and put that on, the soil knows what it needs and will compensate.
When we dug out a row of old coinfers, all I put on the soil then was the chicken pellets, nothing else, the plants all grew very well, sometimes there a bit too much feeding of soil than it really needs.
having said that, there are a lot of people on here that will say otherwise and feed with fish blood and bone, or bonemeal every year.
