I live on the island of Malta in the Mediterranean. I have got a Plumeria plant which is about 8 years old but refuses to flower year after year. It is in full sun and in alkaline soil. Are there any tips to make it flower next year? It loses all its leaves in the mild winters that we have here. I have seen lovely plumerias in other peoples gardens in various villages.

Hi Charli, when i used to work in a garden centre years ago, we would sometimes get the same question, and this is what we recommended, a fertilizer with a really high middle number such as an african violet fertilizer (7-44-7) while i wouldn't suggest using this fertilizer for all your plants that dont flower, especially young ones, it might just work for your stubborn plumeria. good luck!
