We have a potted tree in our backyard that has not bloomed yet. A month or so ago it started blooming little red buds but then they died and nothing has happened since. Should I replace the soil in the pot or trash the tree? Thanks.

Not enough information.

What tree was it? How large is the pot? How long has the tree been in the pot, and how was the tree cared for?

I have no idea what type of tree or the type of care it had. I just moved into this house and it was left here from previous owner. It is not a huge tree. Probably like 4-5 feet tall and pot is a medium sized planter.

wonder if it's out grown the pot and just needs to be planted in soil, no pot?


Could you post a photo?

Why not just plant it in the ground? If it lives, it lives.

There are so many reasons it could be dying...

If it even is dying. You talk about flower buds dying, a period of no water or a cold snap could do that, without really affecting the tree's viability. Does it have leaves?

I live in the city so don't have anywhere to plant except a pot. See attached for a picture of the tree. It has no leaves.

I don't recognize the tree, but it looks to me like those terminal buds are still green, so maybe it isn't quite ready to leaf out yet. I live in a very mild winter place, and some trees here have yet to break bud.

I can't tell from the photo, is it inside or outside right now?

you don't say where you live-that's what pretty much all the trees around here look like.

ok yes it is outdoors and the buds are green but have been for a few weeks. Was wondering if it was getting too late since all the other trees in the area have bloomed. Should I change up the soil??
