Q.How Do I Encourage Blooms On Otherwise Healthy Plants.
I have several plants that are healthy and green (Hydrangea, Trumpet Vine,some of my dalias, etc.) but have not bloomed in a couple years. I think the sun exposure is right and I tried to get them to bloom with a shot of bone meal instead of nitrogen last fall but no luck. Any suggestions to encourage blooms? Hank
