Angel wing begonias - Knowledgebase Question

Last winter my white angel wing begonias were full of flowers. I cut them this summer, fertilized them and I just fertilized them again with oscomote and I do not have any flowers but only green in it. Do you know why? Thank you for your answer.

Overfertilizing can keep begonias from flowering, but as the stems age they can become incapable of flowering so either of these conditions might play a part in your non-blooming begonias. Prune old canes that have stopped blooming back to two leaf joints now, leaving the juvenile growth in place. New growth will sprout from the remains of the old stems and this new growth should bloom for you. Hope it's soon!
