You can feed your plants with a 10-10-10 all purpose garden fertilizer. If they are not thriving after two years they may be struggling with the soil and it might be worth your while to dig them up, amend the soil with organic matter to help loosen it and help it drain well, then replant your crepe myrtles. Sometimes all it takes is digging and replanting to wake them up and make them grow. Best wishes with your crepe myrtles!
