It is usually recommended that you do not fertilize for the first year after planting, allowing the plant's root to establish. Could possibly be the lack of enough water, or a pH problem. The garden center has an inexpensive pH kit for you to check the existing pH. It usually takes at least three years for a plant to really adjust and than put out more growth. Good luck.
: I have several large crape myrtles that we planted last fall and this spring. One has not put out any blooms, and the others that are blooming have developed dry edges around the leaves. What can I do for them. They are so beautiful, but they look like they are stressed.
