Cool spring temperatures or any winter damage can effect spring leaf out and blooms.
Since last year was your first bloom; it is still a new tree.
A simple soil test can help you determine if a boost of fertilizer may help you tree.
Your County Extension Office can help you with this.
Here are some links to help you.
