Fringe Tree Is Producing Leaves But Not Flowering This Year

Question From: A. Trudeau - Niceville, Florida, United States
Q: My fringe tree is 2 years old and flowered last year this year it just produce green leaves first? What can I do to encourage flowering for next year?

A: Could be a weather issue. Your best bet is to make sure it is well watered. Excessive use of nitrogen will also keep trees from flowering. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
