Q.Dogwood Not Flowering

Anonymous added on January 17, 2011 | Answered

I have two dogwood trees planted on the northside of my house. Both appear healthy, with good foliage and are about five years old. They flowered their first year only. What do I need to do to get them to flower again?

Based on the comment that they have healthy foliage, I suspect that they have too much nitrogen in the soil. This happens if they are planted too close to a lawn that is fertilized regularly. Have the soil tested and increase the amount of phosphorous the trees are getting.
