My dad had huge oleanders when I was a kid. 9 inch plastic pots with a 6 ft high plants in the kitchen or conservatory.
I keep mine indoors north facing window sills in kitchen & south facing in living room. They flower a bit but not prolific with anything. Soil is OK. Feed? Too hot? Too cold?

On plant Oleander



Oleanders love being hot and on the dry side. They will only usually flower during the summer in the UK. Give a weekly liquid feed from May to September, keep in full sun if possible.

Mine is in a 10 litre pot and was in the conservatory all summer. It flowered really well then i cut it back fairly hard and put it outside....and that's where it's remained, all winter. It's as green and healthy as the day i bought it despite it being subjected to temps as low as minus 6 and bitter north east wind !!!!

Just in case you didn't know, Oleanders are extremely poisonous.

I've never been tempted to use them as kebab sticks.
Full sun dries up leaves.
I did put one out......better check its not out there!!
