Q.Honey Crisp Apple Trees Don’t Flower

I have 2 Honey Crisp apple trees that haven’t bloomed and are 5 years old. Do they need something? My other type trees are in full bloom right now and they are all in one field.

It may be a fertilizing issue, likely a nitrogen/phosphorus imbalance. Too much nitrogen in the soil will produce healthy growth but limit flowering and fruiting production. Try adding some more phosphorus-rich fertilizer or bone meal to the soil to encourage more flowering. Plants need phosphorus for flowering and fruiting. Without it, there will be no blooms and thus no fruit.
