Answer: Hi Bob,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Viburnum odoratissimum bears terminal white flowers in late spring early summer. To allow the tree to flower well, it is important to avoid any pruning or trimming in spring to let the tree to form the terminal flowers freely. Also, you can try some potassium-rich slow-release fertiliser to encourage more flowering. Try Yates Thrive Natural Roses & Flowers Pelletised Plant Food. It’s enriched with Dynamic Lifter and has added nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to give your flowering plants the right balance of nutrients for their growing needs. Click here for more info:

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
