Me again!

My wintersweet is now 5ft tall, can i expect it to flower this winter? It is threeyears old and hasn't flowered yet maybe as it wasnt happy where it was before, i transplanted it last summer and it hs shot up. I feed every 2 weeks.

Hi there

If you transplanted it a year ago and it is sending up lots of new growth than the chances of it flowering this winter are pretty good as it will flower on ripe new wood. As long as it is in full to part sun in a fertile, well drained soil than it should be happy

Dear Paula,
Is it getting enough sun? However, 3 years doesn't seem unrealistic as length of time to maturity. Maybe you could encourage flowering by pruning (early spring after it would have flowered).
