Hi, I planted a syringa madame lemoine about a year ago and although there are plenty of healthy green leaves on the plant it hasn't flowered at all this year. I'm promised large very fragrant blooms and can't wait! Is this normal? and how long beforethe flowers appear? I have fed it well and as mentioned it looks very healthy. Any advice welcome and many thanks. Ann

Hi Ann

The first question is, how big was the plant when you first bought it?

And the second is - you say that you have been feeding it, can I ask you with what. There are many different plant fertilisers on the market, and with each comes a sightly different formulation.

In my experience, this is often the clue to the non-floweringness of a flowering plant. You talk of healthy leaves, so we know that it is thriving. If you can give me this information, then I can help you find a suitable answer to get your plant to a great flowering future!

Talk soon

thanks for taking the time.
Plant was about just over a foo when I bought it, from a national trust property so I know it's a goodie! I'm feeding it with "Westland" slow release granular food. Hope this info is of help. Ann
