Here in the south it usually does not snow. This year it snowed 3 times where i live. My Oleanders are frost bitten. What can I do? Plus, they have only bloomed once in the 3 years I had them and that was last year. What do you use to fertilize them? Thanks

You can prune away the winter damage now. Oleanders bloom on new growth and bloom best in full sunshine. Pruning each spring will encourage lots of new (flowering) growth. Don't feed your oleanders. Nitrogen fertilizer will promote green growth but can delay flowering. Best wishes with your oleander.
