Why does my jasmine not flower? Why Jasmine Does Not BloomToo much nitrogen fertilizer will direct energy to growing foliage and take away from the blooms that are forming. This can also be theissue when most jasmine flowers are not blooming, but a few are peeking through. Try fertilization with a low, or even no-nitrogen plant food.

What is the best fertilizer for Jasmine? A 7-9-5 fertilizer works well for jasmine plants. It is 7 percent nitrogen, which ensures lush, healthy, green leaves, 9 percent phosphorus for abundant, large flowers and 5 percent potassium forstrong roots and improved resistance to diseases, insects and drought.
