I had a neighbor once who loved to mow -- even in the the 100 degree heat of August and September. Just about everyone else thought he was nuts. LOL.

Oh brother! Cheesy

(Did he mow it too short, too?)

Right now I've got a "bloom booster" by miracle grow, and a Carmelia and Acid loving plants, also by miracle grow.  Which do you think would work better?

The bloom booster is what I put on early in the year, and accidentally unbalanced the soil. Too alkaline  (overkill!)  So after that I poured a liter of coke on it, and it started producing normal shaped leaves again.

Maybe I went to far with the coke, and now have to take it back t'other way? 

Other problem with crappy soil is there is very little to buffer whatever is put in.

The coke shouldn't be very persistent in the soil, so I wouldn't worry too much about that. If you're getting bad results with the Bloom Booster, I'd try the Acid Lovers. Try mixing it a bit weaker than the package directions.

Is the plant getting enough light? That's another reason why it might produce leaves but no blooms.

I used to like to mow...  when I was in early high school and using a riding mower to mow a good-sized-but-not-huge lawn at my parents' house.  It was some time to just sit and think.  Also, it was the closest thing to driving I could do.  Cheesy  Now that it's my own lawn, even a small mostly dead one, and I'm using a push mower, I hate it.  LOL

Perhaps because he was?   Cheesy

Only about mowing. Otherwise he seemed quite sane. Cheesy

It's got full sun  Cheesy About 8-10 hours a day.  I read somewhere there was a way to trick hydrangeas into thinking they'd reached the top of whatever it is they're climbing up to get them more dedicated to blooming.  Maybe it would work for the morning glory?

Upon further reading I guess not.  I would have to find a way to divert the growth away from the drainpipe that it's found and been climbing after it swallowed the trellis and start training it downwards making it think there was nothing else to grab onto.  Which would require a ladder, and pretty much daily vine training. 

I'm starting to think the darn thing is just going to to what it's going to do.  We've still got a few months of solid sun and hot weather to go, so maybe it will come through.  Fingers crossed anyways.

I'm gonna tell my son to join a circus so that death is cheap
And games are just another way of life
And I'm gonna tell my son to be a prophet of mistakes
Because for every truth there are half a million lies
And I'm gonna lock my son up in a tower
Till he learns to let his hair down far enough to climb outside.
