I planted a Conference pear tree in my lawn three years ago and as yet have seen no blossom. Is this to be expected, or what am I doing wrong?

Could be wrongly named. My hubby once planted a fir tree with its root sack on. That is extreme!! Nice big hole ,tease out roots, in full light, fed ,good support. Conference likes company, as is a part self pollinator, (Hessayon) Is it windy where tree is placed? Or just bad luck to buy a duff tree. One of our apples is reluctant to blossom, Charlotte is her name...she won't be there much longer if she has no blossom next year.

are you pruning it incorrectly?
it could be in the wrong site. frost would cause bud drop as would too dry a site.
what are the soil conditions like?
sorry lots of questions. if you join us we can have a proper q&a session and hopefully sort our problem out.
