We have a potted bougainvilla that we fertilize and prune according to nursery recommendations. However, it does not bloom. What do you suggest?

Since I don't know what the nursery recommended, I can't comment on that, however, in my experience, bogies grow and bloom better when stressed for both fertilizer and water. They also take full sun. I'd hold off on fertilizing, water only when the soil is dry, and make sure it receives plenty of sunlight. Good luck!
