Today I gave the Japanese Morning Glory plants a does of higher phosphorus fertilizer (Miracle-Gro "Bloom Booster" product). I most likely will repeat it again next month. Up until now, I have been feeding the plants to establish strong root systems and for enhanced leaf production. Now it is approaching "party time" and the higher level of P will help bring on the flowers of August. :-)
