Plumerias - Time to fertilize (when to start/when to finish
We puchased a Plumeria last year and it has grown very well. It did not flower this year, but was not concerned.
I was told the flowers would come first, then the leaves if it were going to flower.
We have fertilized it all summer, fertilizer with high middle number. I have stopped now.
It started to lose it leaves when we brought it in.
Does one start applying fertilizer in the spring when new growth begins or is it prior to new growth. I have always fertilized when new growth begins.
Is it the fertilizing of the plumeria the previous year that promotes flowering for the summer following? Or is the fertilizing that is started in the spring what promotes flowering in the same year?
