Too much shade will keep Convallaria majalis, or Lily-of-the-Valley, from blooming well. If possible, give your plants some morning sunshine in a bed of rich, moist soil. Feed in late spring and keep the soil moist during the summer months for best performance. If your plants haven't been divided in 3-4 years, they may be overcrowded, which might also reduce bloom. Hope this information helps!
