I got 4 Frangipani plants at my local Home Depot two weeks ago. What is the right plant food for them. They are all planted in my yard in south Florida. They all appear healthy, but no flowers on any of them, yet.

As your plants mature they will begin to develop branches. When this happens you'll see those fragrant, beautiful flowers. Mine took 3 years after planting to begin branching out so you may not see flowers for another 2-3 years. Feed in the spring with a general purpose, time release 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 in amounts as recommended on the fertilizer label.
