Dogwood Trees

Dogwood Won’t Bloom or Grow

luvmy3kids added on April 23, 2015 | Answered

We have a dogwood planted in our front yard. It was planted in early spring 1999. Our property sits on shale. We have great grass but our dogwood won't bloom and has grown very little. Is there a specific nutrient that this tree needs?
