I planted a Buddleja Alternifolia 2 years ago and it does seem to be happy and growing. But it still hasn't flower??

Any suggestions please?

    I didn't get many this year either. Blame the weather again?

    When did you prune it?  I don't know when you should as I don't grow that one, but if done at the wrong time you may cut off the flowering wood - have done this with shrubs in the past.  Otherwise as nutcutlet says, blame the weather!!

    Mine didn't flower this year. Ist time in 15 years. It usually looks like a firework going off. I blamed last summer, as the wood didn't ripen enough to flower.

    Now ours has flowered as normal this year. And we certailny did not get and decent weather to ripen the wood last year. Never actually pruned mine either, so cannot help there.

    Try giving it a good feed, general purpose now and high potash in Spring.
