I bought a yellow mandivilla at Home Depot. for a year, the yellow flower always bloomed. The past 6 weeks, there are no blooms. did I give it too much fertilizer?

Too much fertilizer can encourage lots of green growth but at the expense of flowers. You may have over fertilized and the only thing you can do now is wait patiently for your mandevilla to begin blooming again. Next time you feed, use only half as much as recommended on the fertilizer label. Enjoy your garden.
