    Plants not blooming


    I have been growing woody plants in my garden for several years now but last winter they didn’t bloom as well as they usually do. It has me concerned. What can I do to improve the chances of flowering for spring of next year? What sort of steps should I take?

    "Ive had the same problem. Covering your plants during the winter to protect them from frost, and also early spring when the weather is still unsettled. The problem this year seemed to be the hail stones and windy weather dropping buds before they were able to form. Other than that adding nutrients to your soil can help. Grow more is a good product."

    "Woody plants need plenty of organic matter, try feeding them with a mulch with nitrogen but free from urea, make sure they aren’t in a position susceptible to wind and in a position away from scorching sun."
