How to make a magnolia tree bloom

I have had this tree for 10 years. It is finally about 10 feet tall, but it has never bloomed. What am I doing wrong?

Was your magnolia grown from seed by chance? If so, you haven't done anything wrong - it can take up to 10-15 years to bloom.

Does your tree look healthy?

Do a double-check on the care of magnolias by reading the following article - is it getting the sunlight, water and fertilizer that it needs?
