No blossom on plum tree

Posted: 03/05/2013 at 10:07

Thanks everyone for the advice re my dead or dying ceanothus. I do have another query though. Further up on same side of garden I have a minarette victoria plum tree. It is civered in healthy looking green leaves but no blossom has appeared. What should I do to encourage it to produce blossom for next season. This tree did not produce much fruit last year after I moved it. In its original position the branches were laden with fruit.

    I do have two minarette Apple tree which are covered in blossom at the moment. I know someone out there will help me. Thanks in advance.

OK I will leave italian skies to possibly recover. BUT I still might buy another type to plant elsewhere. I quite like the foliage on "Lemon and Lime." Has anyone had experience of this shrub. Many thanks all

I have a ceanothus "Italian skies" which appears to have died. It has been established a few years and flowered well last year. However this year a lot of it appears to be dead with no foliage buds. There are some small buds but some of them are dying off. Was this due to the cold weather or has it been overshadowed by my forsythia bush which appears to have spread over the ceanothus. Or is there some other reason.

Thankyou wintersong. I did wonder whether to reduce the foliage myself to make it easier. Ok will get on and do this.

Hello. I have several large clumps of hellebores which are now towering over smaller plants at base of a rockery. Is this a good time to move these plants which are very healthy and still in flower and are there any right and wrongs ways of doing this. Thankyou
