The main thing crape myrtles need to bloom is good sun exposure. Full sun is best. The second thing is good vigor. Your fertilizing should help but watering some when the soil gets dry is also helpful. This time of the year your plants should have been receiving adequate rainfall though. Keep them growing, give them sun and they should start blooming soon.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
