Actually bougainvillea grow and flower better if they are stressed for nutrients and water. Fertilize once in spring with a product such as 15-30-15, following package instructions. Thereafter, watch the plant for signs of nutrient deficiency such as yellowing leaves. Only apply fertilizer if the plant needs it.
