Q.Why Won’t My Twisty Baby Locust Bloom?

Zone 98375 | Anonymous added on June 8, 2023 | Answered

Had the tree for about 5 years. Planted at about 6 feet tall. It has grown to about 10+ feet. It has never bloomed. It is in a sunny spot by a fence. It gets regular water from sprinklers or rain. I’ve only fertilized it once or twice during the 5 years.
