We planted a pink flowering trumpet tree two or maybe three years ago, and it has never bloomed. What can we do to make it bloom?

Immaturity is about the only thing that will keep a pink trumpet tree from blooming. I think yours is old enough so you should see flowering within the next year. Full sunshine gives the best show, and you might be able to encourage flowering by feeding your tree with a 5-10-10 fertilizer. Broadcast the amount recommended on the fertilizer (based upon the size of the caliper of your tree) and scratch it into the soil. Be sure to water it in well. Hope this does the trick!
