Why is my Rosela bush not flowering. Its huge in size, about 7ft tall. But no blooms.... help

I was in the same boat. Big plants but no flowers. Now i have fruit everywhere and around 50-60 flowers everyday. Central QLD. Seamed a few weeks ago when the temps dropped a little they started to flower. These are bushes i grew from my own seeds from last season. I have another 4 bushes grown from seeds i bought from Ebay. 2 of these bushes have only just started signs of fruit in the last 2 days. Yours may flower real soon, depends on your climate/temperatures. I made a jar of rosella jam yesterday. Looks like another 100 jars coming up lol

You may have too much nitrogen in the soil so leaf growths is excessive at the expense of flowers? Add some potassium

You may have over fertilised it or grown it out of season. Plants will grow and grow until nutrient starts to run out and then they will go to seed to reproduce themselves.
