Q.How to make my mock orange blossom again?

Zone Winnipeg | Anonymous added on June 20, 2020 | Answered

You have an article about mock orange not blossoming, recommending that pruning should be taking place just after the flowers die to be able to come up next year. Since my mock orange is not blossoming, how do I know when to prune it in order to make the flowers return?

First, try to get your shrub to bloom, then worry about pruning it. I wouldn't prune it this year if you don't have any flowers. That article is just saying some people prune late in the year, thereby cutting off the buds forming for the next year.

This article should help determine what's wrong:


Check your fertilization (needs high phosphorous) and amount of light it receives.
