Answer: Too much nitrogen fertilize can cause plants to grow lush leaves, but at the expense of bloom. Fertilizing a few times with Miracle-gro doesn't sound like too much, though. You may wish to switch to a bloom-promoting plant food to see if that makes a difference. If the weather has been excessively hot and humid, as it has been in many areas of the country this summer, it may have discouraged blossom formation, too. Other cultural tips for promoting bloom in containers is to let the plants get a bit potbound, and allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. I hope this helps!
