|Hello, my container annuals such as salvia and bacopa are planted in miracle grow, have lots of sun are watered regularly are healtly yet do not produce many flowers. Hardly any. I gave them chicken manure as a fertilizer and don't understand why they still don't bloom. Please advise.

|Too much fertilizer can result in lots of green growth at the expense of flowers. Between the Miracle gro potting soil and the high nitrogen chicken manure I think your plants are overwhelmed by your TLC. Hold off on feeding and as soon as they are able, they'll bloom. Enjoy!
