Bloom next year on my Candia Tulip?
Arizona, United States
My candia tulips are showing signs of going to sleep for the summer, with nary a bloom this year. I'm not too surprised, since this is their first year, and I read that they need to be well established to bloom. On the other hand, I would like to give them their best chance of blooming next year.
They are planted in sandy soil, in morning sun, with shade starting around 1 pm. While they have leaves, I have been feeding them lightly with a balanced fertilizer once a month--no overt signs of burning or nutrient deficiencies. What more do I need to do to bring out the bloom next year?
