A customer has a Cornus florida that doesn't flower. Any suggestions? Super phosphate?
Thanks.
Hope all is well up there. Back to working all the time here. Thankfully?

Good to see you Randy!

Try iron or aluminum sulfate if the tree is over 5 years...Spread around the perimiter of the root ball (or where you expect it is) and water in...May take a couple years, but you should see some blooming next season...

Info all over the net I expect...And I may be wrong, but that is something I remember from somewhere, so try and confirm it before you kill that poor dogwood...LOL...

If my fathers, father was still around he would show you how to make a flute out of a dogwood branch... :-)
Salmoneye,

Helloooooo Randy! Good to have you back.
'Fraid I ain't much help on stuff like that. Does it need cutting back? Is it overgrown/shaded with other stuff? I know Forsythia won't bloom very well unless it is cleaned up on a regular basis.
I wish I had a Cornus florida. All I have is Cornus alternifolia. They are blossomed out right now but not really pretty.
