I am especially interested in this issue. I am in southern coastal
California and have I have lots of healthy green growth on my many clumps
of TB but poor or no bloom. These were transplanted from Seattle in 1995.
Winter temps in + 40s F. They are fed several times during the spring and
summer with Miracle grow. They are automatically watered 3xweek and
probably never totally dry out. Please give us some help.
