Oleanders that won't bloom
I live in east Texas and have 1 oleander that blooms and 6-7 oleanders that refuse to bloom. I have fertilized them to no avail. Most of them are over 4 years old. What am I doing wrong?

Oleanders need full sun to thrive. Are yours getting at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day? If not, you should transplant them to a sunny spot. Also, oleanders like plenty of water, which they might not be getting with your average annual rainfall. Make sure to supplement it with the hose. Fertilizer is fine (as long as it's not too much, which can cause them to stop producing, too), but a soil test to see which nutrients it lacks can help you amend the soil around the oleanders. Get in touch with your county extension service and they can tell you what they need to test your soil.
