I am new to the board. I have several morning glory vines, all are blooming nicely except one that is climbing up a fence and a small tree. Tons of healthy foliage, no blooms at all. Plenty of sun exposure, healthy looking foliage, just no blooms. I read something on this site about Epson salt, would that help?

Hi creg! Welcome to the forum!

I've had MGs for a few years, but I've only recently heard of using Epsom salt. I had read up on it and it seems to work! I haven't tried it yet, but plan on it. My advice would be that it might be a good idea to try for the one flowerless plant...

actually, epsom salts is well known to most seasoned gardeners, although some, like me, tend to forget sometimes

however, morning glories are one plant i would not use it on. they seem to better when left to their own, and feeding them can actually cause them to vine more than flower.

on a final note, i deleted the epsom salt link because while it has some good information, the information found there can also be found here.

Thank you CajunMama and Jiffymouse, the questionable morning glory vine is showing some signs of buds so I think I will leave it alone. I do have another question: The vine continues to grow in length every day. Do you think it would be beneficial to cut off the new daily growth with hopes of some of the nutrition going to the appearing buds?
