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!
