My plant grows well in the conservatory in a container. It is full of pretty healthy flowers at the moment but has not got any scent. Why?
It's probably a cultivar that has little fragrance. Often plant breeders will select for attributes such as flower size, color, disease resistance, and so on, and the fragrance is often lost.
We have recently planted a yesterday, tomorrow and forever plant that was full of blooms but after planting, the bush appears healthy but hasn't bloomed since. We have followed all planting guidelines. We are in GA. Any suggestions?
It often happens that when you put in a new plant, it takes awhile to start new flowers. The plant is putting its energy into growing roots and establishing itself in its new home. Give it lots of TLC, as in the following article, and be patient. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/yesterday-today-tomorrow/yesterday-today-tomorrow-plant.htm
I have a plant that was doing well with big leaves and flowers and now it is going yellow and not producing flowers. It is located in a pot and in partial shade and sun. It is 5 years old and this is the first problem I have had with it.
Water logged soil and nutrient deficiency came to mind when I read that it is going yellow. Check the soil with your finger - is it damp/soggy or dry to the touch? If it's damp, the plant has been over-watered.
As for nutrient deficiency, this results from potting mixture that is not acid enough.
Either way, I think a re-potting of your plant and a freshening-up of the soil is in order. Use potting mix that contains some peat. When watering, add some iron sulphate to the water. Or, you can encourage healthy foliage by sprinkling some nitrogen rich fertilizer granules around the root zones and watering them in immediately. Also make sure you feed it potassium rich fertilizer to encourage those flowers to bloom.

What fertilizer do I use on my "Yesterday, today and tomorrow" plant? Also, my "Xoria" plant? Each or in pots. I live in Austin, Texas. They get morning sun.
For your container plants use a slow release all purpose fertilizer in the spring.
Last winter we had a slight frost and our Yesterday Today and Tomorrow plant got hit. In March, I cut it back quite far. The plant has come back beautifully; however, it's not producing any flowers. What can I do or is that what to expect when it gets hit by frost?
Here is a link to refresh you on the care requirements.
I would give it another season to bloom after it's winter damage.
Fertilize in the spring.
Can you plant this from cut offs or must it start from a seed?
You can propagate from both soft wood cuttings and collected seeds.
How can I make this plant bloom?
Make sure you have not over fertilized. Too much nitrogen will inhibit flowering. You can give the plant a boost of phosphorous to encourage flowering.
Bone Meal is a way to add the phosphorous.
