Ever since we moved here, it's very hard to get flowers to blossom, and even when we do, the blossoms are small, as well as very few. Even lilacs. I have some next to the house that are just not doing well. They are green, and look healthy, but minimal blossoms on the older plants, and none yet on the ones planted when we moved here.
Also, my bleeding heart, which usually bloomed till after frost, and got really bushy back at the old house, only grows half as tall here. It's usually dead by mid fall. The only thing that has thrived is lilies.
We have terrible water here, with a good deal of calcium in it. We started to save rain water in the summer for watering plants, but that didn't make any difference, so I can only assume it's our soil???
I also have a peace plant from my grandmas funeral in the house, and a Christmas cactus. Both have blossomed only 1x in the 3 years we've been in this new house. These two get bottled water. I do have a violet plant in the same window as these other two, and the violet thrives, and flowers practically year round!
What could be the problem?
