Why won't my nerium oleander flower.?

S.Yorkshire, United Kingdom Gb

It was a large potted plant with a few flowers when I bought it in early summer but has not flowered since despite getting what look like flower buds.

Should be keptwell watered and fed with liquid tomato feed from late spring until latesummer; also remove faded flowers. Minimum temperature should be 50oF as these are tender shrubs.

This seems to need a lot of good strong sunlight to flower properly. The change of situation (from nursery to your place) may have set it back a little.Keep it frost free over winter and then in as much light as possible.
