I was given a large specimen 2 years ago, it remained in a large pot because of moving, after moving early this year, I divided the specimen and planted. In all of this time I have not had one single flower. Has anyone any idea why this could be?

They need fertile, moist soil; they will grow in part shade with reduced flowering. As your plant has been in a pot the soil is probably not fertile enough. They grow in damp places at the edges of a pond, so I imagine you should plant it in decent soil, that is damp all year, but in a sunny location.

Thank you Patricia. They are planted in a fertile soil in my bog garden which has full sun. Regards

Good, you now have them in ideal conditions to flower next year. I had two Viburnum in pots when I moved house, one went straight into the ground and is a fully grown flowering tree the other I kept in its pot and it eventually got put in the ground about four years later, it took ages to achieve the height and flowering capabilities that the first one did.So I think you should find your plants will now thrive.
