We have had a lilac tree in the garden for the last ten years, and it has never flowered.
Can anyone tell me why



Mine didn't flower for about 4 years after I cut it back rather too vicously. Do you know if its ever been pruned?

Are you absolutely certain it's actually a lilac?

Hi Shelagh and welcome to GoY, could you post a photo of the tree/shrub for us to look at.
