Fertilizing will help with this. They should grow at a decent rate for a smaller tree. I would suggest dolomitic lime over epsom salt. This will also provide calcium along with magnesium. This is necessary for the magnesium to be taken up. You can add iron sulfate to supplement sulfur and iron which can help with flowering as well. Just follow all instructions on the package.

As far as when it will flower… This depends on the age of the tree. This can take a few years if it is young.
