I have a laburnum tree age unknown but here when we moved in 6 years ago, but it is not old, it only has 3 flowers each year, Used loads of potash this spring to try and kick it into action, and got 5 folowers! Any ideas?



I have a Laburnum Vossi planted in clay soil and mine didnt flower well when I first planted it, after 3-4 years I was told by a tree grower to top dress it with ericaceous compost twice a year and it has flowered profusely ever since I recently posted photos of it. The other thing is it in full sun? as they prefer this.

Thanks for this, it is in full sun, unfortunately cannot top dress because it is in a part of garden top dressed with bark - guess I`ll just have to accept 5 flowers!
