|I have a Hibiscus plant which I have had for quite a long time (29 years). Each year I cut it back and it comes back nicely with beautiful blossoms. This year after cutting it back, all I get is leaves, no blossoms. I fertilize regularly. Wgy does this happen ?

|Hibiscus blooms on new shoots so as long as your plant is growing new wood, it should flower. Depending upon how much you pruned off, it simply may be taking a little longer this year for your plant to recover. I don't think it's anything to worry about - I'm sure your hibiscus will flower again.
