I bought several may night salia this year, but have not bee able to get any blooms on them. I pinched the dead growth, but still no luck. Do you have any suggestions.

May Night Salvia grows best in full sunshine, in lean soil. Too much nitrogen fertlizer can keep them from blooming. They like heat and should bloom well through June. I wonder if your new plants are taking their time adjusting to your garden? As soon as the roots become well established they should grow and bloom for you. Just be a little more patient and I'm sure you'll be rewarded with their awesome spikes of flowers!
