my forsythia bushes get lots of green leaves, but very few blossoms. The bushes are about 40 years old. They get plenty of sun, what do I need to do so they will bloom?

Forsythias not blooming could be due to our harsh winter.  Forsythia from buds over summer for the next spring’s flower cycle.  The cold, dry wind over winter can dry out those buds during a rough winter and then there are no flowers.  Is your forsythia exposed to a lot of wind?  If so, protecting them from wind with burlap windbreaks can help.

A lack of nutrients can also rob the plants of the energy they need to flower.  Feed them right away with some Flower-Tone HERE’S A LINK on spring feeding.  This won’t help it flower this year but may for next year’s flowers.
