As long as your crabapple is healthy, is getting plenty of sunshine and is putting on new growth, it will eventually bloom for you. Usually plant maturity (not size, but age) is what dictates blooming ability. I'd hold off on feeding the tree - too much nitrogen can result in rampant growth, but at the expense of flowers. Hope your crabapple blooms for you this coming spring!
