Glad we've been helpful in the past! Oleanders bloom best in full sunshine and they like hot temperatures. They bloom on new growth so pruning yours back should promote new, flowering growth. They like to be watered on a regular basis but they don't need to be fed. If you are feeding regularly that might explain why it won't flower for you. Just make sure it's getting lots of sunshine, prune it back to encourage new flowering growth and don't feed it and maybe this will be the summer it blooms for you. Hope so!
