Question: 86-5201
We have some bittersweet vines that have not bloomed this year. This is the first year in 20 years. What is the problem? Ruth, Kewanee, IL

Mort's Answer:
Your soil is depleted of phosphorus and potassium. The excess water this year may have leached out many minerals. Some 5-10-10 fertilizer applied under each plant will wash into the soil with the repeated rains.
