Dogwood Tree Has Not Begun To Flower

Question From: Livonia, Michigan, United States
Q: Hi Nancy, thanks for the info on holly. I did fertilize and it looks better. My dogwood tree has not begun to flower. I see buds which are very tight. Have I lost the tree? It is 2-1/2 yrs. old. Ny golden vicars looks like a goner.

A: Again, be patient. My trees and shrubs are taking forever. I have an entire forest that is late in budding out. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
