Unfortunately, your photo did not come through.

Morning glories do not require fertilization, since they are very prolific. They are considered invasive and really shouldn't be fed. Usually, too much nitrogen will be the culprit. Unfortunately, adding a bloom booster will not correct the issue in this case, since they are sensitive to rich soils.

When there are no blooms, it will be necessary to look at environmental conditions for this plant. Something like too much water, or overwet conditions will cause a lack of blooms, as will a lack of sun, although they bloom find in shade. Fungal infections, or bacterial infections can cause a lack of blooms as well.
