Our Horse Chestnut Tree

Our Horse Chestnut tree, planted 26 years ago, has not flowered this year, hence no conkers. All other years we have had plenty of conkers for the grandchildren! Could you explain and perhaps tell us what has gone wrong? Other than no flowers it looks quite healthy.

Many thanks.

If you didn’t see these problems, there are some other possibilities, like severe drought or a late severe freeze that could have killed the flower buds.
