Phlox Are Healthy But Never Bloom

Question From: C. Hoffman - Waterloo, Iowa, United States
Q: I have this group of phlox that look healthy, get plenty of sun, but never bloom. Why?

A: Are you fertilizing them? If so you may be overdoing it. Try tough love. Hold back on the water and do not fertilize them. Stubborn plants often bloom when in stress because they fear death and do not want their specie to die out. Good Luck and Happy Yardening, Nancy
