No Flowers on Nectarine Tree
I bought a nectarine tree this winter and planted it early Feb. I live in So. California and we had a good amount of cold weather, even some freeze. I have many green leaves popping out on the tree but not one flower. Why?

It may be a fertilizing issue, likely a nitrogen/phosphorus inbalance. Too much nitrogen in the soil will prodcue 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 and fruiting. Plants need phosphorus for flowering and fruiting. Without it, there will be no blooms and thus no fruit. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm
