I've been told over and over that they are heavy feeders. Recommended to give 'blue stuff' once a week and fish emulsion once a month.

I'm new to Brugs. having received my first 2 plants and some cuttings last March. All but one were planted in pots. The Chs.Grimaldi cuttings grew like crazy and bloomed last summer, but the Dr.Suess cuttings did not bloom. They were all watered, fertilized and shared the same location under a tall pine tree, where they received morning sun/afternoon shade. So, maybe it depends on the species/hybrid as how soon they bloom.

Dr.Sues is a fast grower, but I get all of my seedlings and cuttings to bloom in the first 7-9 months of their life so go figure. The only exception are seedlings that are planted outside late and those freeze in the winter months. They come back in the spring though and bloom by june-august at the latest as seedlings.
