Hi,
I have planted morning glories in my raised planter and they have not bloomed. The vines are healthy and climbing, but no blooms yet. I live in New Jersey and the summer is starting to end.

It's hard to get blooms in Northern climates before fall weather. The folks I know that grow MGs that far North start theirs indoors in January/February.
I planted my Japanese MGs in June, and they are just entering their maximum bloom time. But I'm in Arkansas, so we don't have our first hard frost until around Thanksgiving. We do have a ipomoea forum; lots of folks there could give you additional advise.

Hey, that's ok! They just take their time flowering! I will say that when you get seed drop the seedlings come up very early in the spring and bloom early. I noticed you're in zone 7a, you may just get blooms this year. When is your frost date there?

That's great! I think our frost date is a little later in October, but lately we haven't had a freeze until nearly Christmas. Last year we did have a very early hard freeze, but that was the expedition to the rule. I've picked tomatoes for Thanksgiving and Christmas many times.
