We keep buying this and have it both in the ground and in a container. All plants seem healthy with lovely foliage - but no flowers. Is there something they particularly need/like that we should be giving them

On plant Convolvulus cneorum



These like full sun, so assuming you've provided a situation where that would be possible, do you feed them and if so, what with?

I've found them to thrive in impoverished soil, maybe you've given them soil that's too good.

As Louise advises, they like a poor, gritty sandy soil in full sun. In nature it grows in bare, limestone hills in southern Europe and Sicily.

I've lost several of these over the years. Rabbits just LOVE them, and so do vine weevils... :-(
