{Disarmed} Re: Kind of OT - soil

When things grow well but don't flower it often means that they have too much nitrogen in relation to there phosphate phosphorous and potassium levels. Watch what you fertilise with, especially animal manures.

Subject: [iris-photos] Kind of OT - soil

After living here for 15+ years, I decided to have a formal soil analysis done this summer.
I was greatly surprised when it came back with a pH of 6.8, and very solid levels of all nutrients.  It suggested no augmentation at all
The texture is slightly clayish, but I have excellent drainage since I sit on a side hill with a gravel under layer.

All my beds get full sun until late June, and then all get at least 6-8 hrs of full sun...
I am confused about why I have some plants that grow like weeds and never bloom...
any thoughts ?
