Do the plants have signs of disease?
Has the weather been cooler, warmer then normal?
Excess rainfall or drought conditions?

Are your bulbs in need of lifting and dividing?
A decline of flowers can indicate a need to do divisions on your plants.

Have you done a soil test? A soil test can tell you if the plants are in need of soil amendments or fertilizer.
