Dogwood Tree Does Not Bloom - Knowledgebase Question

I have a fairly young, healthy-looking dogwood tree (I would say it is between 3 to 4 years) and it does not bloom in the spring. Is there something I should go to encourage it to flower?

It's probably just not mature enough to bloom yet. If it's Cornus florida, the Flowering Dogwood, they usually bloom in 3-5 years, given ample moisture and a well-drained, humus-rich soil that is kept mulched. If it was slow to get established or suffered a setback after planting, then the bloom will be further delayed. Hope this helps!
