Answer: Your plant will benefit from regular applications of fertilizer. Use a diluted liquid fertilizer (according to label directions) in the spring and again in the summer. If you'd rather apply a granular fertilizer, use a slow-release 8-8-8, broadcast it over the root area, and scratch it in lightly. Then water your plant well. The nitrogen in the fertilizer will help green up the leaves of your bougainvillea.
