Have 2 plants of lantana in pots, how do I get them to bloom? They were blooming when I bought them, them blooms fell of and have not bloomed since? I keep them in the sun and water when getting limp.

Lantana seems to flower best when the weather is hot but after the flowers fade it develops black berries and then rests before flowering again. I just trim off the faded flowers before they set seeds which seems to make them bloom on a faster cycle. Try pruning your lantana back a little to encourage new flowering growth. Hope it works for you!
