Hi

 

Hoping that someone could help me out here... I have a beautiful pot of Sweet Williams that I bought during the Lalbagh flower show. However, over time (and possibly lack of regular watering and deadheading), the plant had started lookin tired - leaves drying at the edges, etc. 

 

As I noticed the there was new growth coming from the base of the stems and the stuff above was looking too sad, I decided to pruning it down to the new growth. Now I am actually seeing vigorous growth of leaves - the leaves are growing much longer than before, and it's nice and fresh green too... but no sign of flowering.

 

Any ideas why or how to fix it? Thanks,

 

SM

I do not know about your plant. So i can not advice you much. But symptoms says there is higher n fertilizer. Are you using any kind me fertilizer. Stop using it. Use a phosphorus rich fertilizer. May be this help.
