When choosing the fertilizer, note the ratio between nitrogen and potassium: the nitrogen content (N) must be comparable to that of potassium (K) with a very slight prevalence of the former (N).

An excellent fertilizer for flowering creeperyou can find it on Amazon at the price of 13.92 euros (free shipping costs) for the one kg package. For all the info on the product mentioned, I refer you to "this official Amazon page".
