My Bradford pear trees blossom later than anyone elses in my neighborhood. Is there any particular kind of fertilizer that I should be giving them?

Sharon,

No, fertility is not the reason for that and there is not anything you can do to affect bloom time. Either your trees are actually a different variety (there are other ornamental pear varieties very similar to Bradford), or something about the microclimate at their growing location is different.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
