Q. why does my Carolina Allspice bush not have a fragrance

I bought a Carolina Allspice plant online four years ago. While it’s thriving and blooming beautifully, the blooms have no scent which is why I bought it to begin with! Any ideas?

Q. No flowers on allspice

My allspice tree is in a very large pot and has numerous fragrant leaves. No flowers. How do I get it to produce allspice? It is three years old, grows well but not a flower or seed pod. What do I do?

Check the growing conditions with the article below.
Also you may have to much Nitrogen in the soil.
You can add a Phosphorous rich fertilizer such as Bone Meal to promote flowering.

Q. Calycanthus plant

I purchased a sweet shrub(Calycanthus) a couple of years ago, and it really hasn’t grown into what I was expecting, and this year it looks horrible. I’ve attached a picture. Would you be able to identify what could be wrong?

This appears to be a fungal issue paired with a pH issue. I do have a method to curing this that I like to use. The soil priming part is most important as this will, both, correct pH and kill the infection. Although the spray is not completely necessary, it will help, and prevent insect problems in the future. The recipe is as follows:

First, you will want to prime the soil with dolomitic lime, then spread wettable sulfur to Kill off any infection in the soil. I Also like to spray the plant itself. Mix a few drops of one or more of these ingredients into warm water with a spoonful of coconut oil: Rosemary oil, lavender oil, neem oil, garlic oil, cinnamon extract/oil and for really bad cases, also add clove oil.
