How to get shasta daisy to bloom?


I had a beautiful garden about 5X5with tons of Shasta Daisies. For 4 summers they came back and spread and bloomed like crazy. Last summer the never came up. I was hoping they'd come back this summer but they didn't. The garden was bare, as though they never existed! I bought two new plants last spring and planted them in a different garden. They grew nicely but never bloomed until the end of September! This summer, they grew again and look even wider but still no blooms and it doesn't even look like they are going to bloom this year. I don't understand. What happened to my other daisies that were doing so well? Why don't my new ones bloom until the end of the summer (or maybe not at all this year)?
