I have a variety of morning glories as far as colors, however the blue ones have had one flower only and the leaves are now turning a yellow color with a brown surface on them. However it is still producing tons of new leaves and growing taller. What's up with the flowers? Thanx D.

Your blue morning glories need lots of sunshine and heat in order to bloom and they need no fertilizer at all. If they are in a shady spot, if the weather has not been consistently warm, or if they are being regularly fed (or their roots are near a lawn), they won't flower for you. They grow best in lean soil with deep soakings once a week. I wonder if you are giving them a little too much TLC?

Wish I had more information to share....
