Lilac not flowering

Posted: 14/06/2013 at 14:06

I bought a Lilac 2 years ago with beautiful dark flowers on.  Last year it did not flower and again it did not flower this year.  The plant is healthy and growing well.  I would like to see some flowers next year, any advice?

I have a dwarf nectarine plant in a large plastic pot.  This is kept in the greenhouse over winter but oviously not long enough.  I have a severe case of 'peach leaf curl' and have lost nearly all the leaves.  

Is the plant salvageable?

No plum blossom

I have a 5 year old Victoria plum which has never failed but this year no blossom at all.  My daughter's plum tree is the same.   I think it was too cold for the blossom but the apple trees are spendid.

Thanks everyone, the blood red is in the full sun but can get a bit windy in my garden.  I will give it a good feed in the spring and a mulch which hopefully will improve things, saying this it is a very healthy looking tree.

Ants got in the tub my 'blood red' was in with erecaceous soil so garden centre advised to put in the soil.  I did this last Autumn.  This year the leaves are not their usual brilliant red but a dull red and green on the underside.  Is there anything I can do to restore it to it's former glory?
