Q.June 9th And Butterfly Bush Is Not Flowering
I saved 10 butterfly bushes from last year . They all survived the cold winter . I pruned them back in the spring . The leafy foliage is full now and growing tall but no flowers yet . Is this normal ? Is it still a bit too early In the summer ? Should I prune back the new growth or let it alone? They do get full sun . It is June 9th now and no flowers as of yet . What should I do? Thanks

Typically, the sun is all they need for good flowering. I would test the soil, though. There could be too much nitrogen in the soil. SHould the test show too much nitrogen, you can offset with potassium and sulfur.
