Why Isn’t My Angel Trumpet Plant Blooming?

carla.thomas added on June 26, 2012 | Answered

I bought an Angel Trumpet in a container last year. I planted it in my yard and it bloomed like crazy all summer. I trimmed it back just before fall and covered it with hay for protection from frost. Now the plant itself is even bigger and more beautiful than last year but has no buds or blooms. I fertilized it and keep it watered. . . why is it not blooming?

I would guess that the nitrogen to phosphorus ratio is off. The soil may have an abundance of nitrogen, which would result in nice, healthy green growth but little to no blooms. Without the right amount of phosphorus, it will not bloom well. Bone meal is a great way to add phosphorus.
