my laburnum tree budded but then did nothing this year. It still seems to have some green wood, but looks like it is still in February mode? Is it dead/dying? Should I cut it back to see if it might shoot again - and if so when?



Maybe you should be glad Guest. Mine has dropped petals like snow all over the top lawn. Next down will be half a ton of racemes as they part company. It is the none poisonous kind. The Hawthorn is the same, barely a blossom last year. This year I need no more exercise than brushing spent Hawthorn flowers off the path to save being trodden into the house!!! Next it will be berries. I think trees do take a rest from being overburdened with blossom and seeds/fruit. They know what they can manage.
