any tips please??? I have 4 in the garden and they were planted about 3years ago. Not one of them has given me any flowers yet!! 😭

Oh no @SylviaDavies 😫 how big are they? I believe that like apple trees etc they need to develop spurs for the flowers. I bought this tree at about 9ft tall and have had it just over three years and this is the most flowers we’ll have had yet as it’s still quite young and doesn’t have a lot of “old” wood. Maybe they just need time 😊

They are about 3 to 4ft. They were all in flower when bought but no flowers since they were planted. Can only hope its time they need but I'm also thinking that two of them may be in beds that are too dry. They look healthy enough. Cross fingers then! Thank you for your response!

That is strange then @SylviaDavies 🤔 do you feed them at all? I don’t with mine much apart from a thick mulch of well rotted manure in Spring. I would think lack of water wouldn’t be why as stress usually induces flowering more.

I fed last autumn with manure but still nothing. Will try manure now then in case it empowers for next year. I gave them slow release granules for acidic plants last spring and autumn too. Can but try eh!! Thank you for the advice!

I love #autumn ❤️ summer is too hot for me and I have to hibernate from the sun 🌞 I’ve been enjoying getting back out in the garden lately 😊

A winter gardener then, I must admit I love the sun but at my age I don't deal with it as well as I used to. I don't like the cold though. 😊😊

@pelly yes although the cold also affects me worse than “normal” people 😂 I enjoy the garden most in Spring and Autumn when the worst the weather can throw at you is rain ☔️

Not bad times to be gardening. The cold affects me as I have Raynaud's and find it very difficult in the cold weather Gaby. 😞😞

Sorry to hear that @pelly - I can sympathise as my condition affects my extremities and I get frozen toes, fingers etc in winter and hot everything in summer! Warm gloves, hand warmers, heat holder socks and hot water bottles are life savers this time of year! If you don’t have a pair of heat holder socks you should get some, though you need to put them on your feet when they’re warm to retain the heat, they don’t warm up frozen toes so quickly 😁

And I have sealskinz gloves which have a thermal lining, and are waterproof so ideal for wet, cold weather. I love mine and have had them for years with no leaks or cold fingers! @pelly

I'm lucky at the moment as it only affects my fingers when they get cold but I'll certainly look at the gloves. Thanks for the advice Gaby. 😚😚

Isn't it @rosiebug 😊 I put it at the top of the garden which was rather empty, and it makes such a lovely focal point!

I feel so lucky to have got this tree half price. We will have had it three years in November and it is more and more smothered in bloom each year 😊 #pink #cherry #spring

Plenty of #buds fit to burst. Last year each bud contained one flower, this year they seem to have 3-5. Should be a good show!

@atomica how big is the tree? Looking for something with pink blossom but nothing too big.

comment
atomica

@mch29 it is currently about 9ft tall. It's quite a small tree, and grows up to 5-10m tall.

My hubby loves grafting on his fruit trees. He calls them frankintrees as he has so many different kinds of varieties grafted on to one lol. But looks like it's going to be nice

@susanM sounds amazing and I'd love to see that! I wish I was able to do that :) my grandad apparently used to graft several roses on to one plant for people he used to garden for. Very clever!
