Why no blossoms?
I have a 300 gallon Rubbermaid stocktank sunk into the ground and filled with soil for a lotus bog. I've had this about 8 years.??
For most of those years, it had tons of blossoms. But last year, plenty of leaves, but no blossoms. I thought maybe it needed thinned........but when I would push a stake into the soil, there was still alot of soil. So I decided I hadn't been fertilizing it enough.
This year, I've been putting Jobe's Fruit tree spikes into it. It seems to be happy..........lots of leaves......but still no blossoms.
Any suggestions, short of cleaning it all out? What a job that would be!
How might I give it alot more Phosphate for more blossoms? (Isn't that what they need to make blossoms?)
