    My heavenly blue has grown large enough to cover my house, and not a bloom in sight! I have fed it, with the BLOOM stuff, but still no blooms. I'm gonna cry!!!
    Anyone, any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Depending on which type of fertilizer you used, you may have given the morning glory too much nitrogen and not enough phosphorus. Phosphorus encourages seed and flower formation. A plant that does not have enough phosphorus may exhibit purple coloring on the undersides of the leaves and a lack of fruiting and flower production. If you are using manure, it is usually quite high in nitrogen.

    If you water it regularly, try letting it dry out a little so it is a bit stressed.

    too much nitrogen and/or not enough sunlight.
