Crepe Myrtle Not Blooming

I have two crepe myrtles, they are around 7 yeas old, they have never bloomed. I have fertilized, fed, etc. over the last five years. They are beautiful trees, just no blooms. I need some ideas as to what else I might try.

Stop fertilizing and watering as much, and make sure they are getting full sun. I have read that a handful of epsom salts around the base of the shrub/tree will induce bloom. Scatter the epsom salts and water in. This should work like a charm.

I have 7 Crepe Myrtel and the only thing I've done to them is water when it gets hot and dry. Maybe you are doing too much to them. Cut back on the water.
