Bougainvillea Repotting / Planting question
I purchased my Bougainvillea two years ago, a purple flowered from Monrovia. As I've read they like to be pot bound, I never replanted it. Over the winter I store it in my semi heated laundry room (~ 50 and mostly dark). The plant completely goes dormant over winter. This is the plants third season and it only seems to bloom in winter, although I bought it in full bloom in June.
I just took it out from the laundry room and it is sprouting like crazy. I can see the flowers forming already.
I need to replant it as it doesn't stand straight upright. Also, how long can it stay in the growers pot?
Should I wait until the flowering is finished and then replant and back into the same pot?
Also, would you recommend fertilizing it or wait or always fertilize in low doses?
