I planted weigelas 2 years ago and they still haven’t bloomed. They look healthy and are growing, but no flowers. What should I do?

Several things can keep a plant from flowering. Youth, for one -- sometimes plants don't flower until they're several years old. Too much shade is another. The third most likely is too much nitrogen/too little phosphorous. The fix for the first is patience; the second is hard, unless you can cut back some limbs; the third involves cutting back on fertilizer, using fertilizer with a higher middle number, and working bonemeal into the soil as an immediate fix.
