I would like to know why my passion flower is not blooming? It's new this year. I have just bought it in May. It is in a pot on the deck, facing the afternoon sun. I have given it fertilizer and watered it. I think the first little bud was coming out, and the squirrels ate it. I am not sure about this though, unless it shrivelled up.

It may still be too young to bloom. In fact, it may take another season before your plant begins flowering. In addition, the soil may have more nitrogen than phosphorus, which is responsible for the blooming. Add some phosphorus rich fertilizer or bone meal to the soil to help with flowering.
