    Hello all, hope you're having a good one.

    Stopping by to relay a question from a friend:

    "why is my neighbor's tree (same tree, similar access to light, same weather conditions) blooming so much more than mine?"

    That is my friend's question. Excited to hear theories, even the weird ones :setc_029::chuckle: I personally don't think anything paranormal is happening here but I would listen to theories.

    here's a picture of the trees. The one that is blooming better is on the other side of the fence.
    CiaO!

    Is it possible that the neighbor feeds the lawn differently, and that's indirectly influencing how the tree blossoms? That assumes the neighbor doesn't directly feed the tree, of course. :)

    I say that because I have blooming trees identical to neighbors, but feed the lawn organically and a lot, plus feed the trees more directly when I feed the lawn, so they do tend to look better.

    I would suggest something underground. The other tree may have better access to food. Maybe your tree will flower more later, especially if it has deeper roots and it still feels more cold.

    Well if you want a different view..guess those overhead cables are firing up something maybe some heat... but remember Trees convert Carbon Dioxide to Oxygen..helps keep the air clean, so any tree is good for us....

    Could be that wind..we blame the weather often don't we Odif..fair play, as it is surprising how different places around the garden the plants do better or worse
    .
    Canillo Androrra...has an ice rink and sports centre with swimming pool that kept us entertained why our vehicle was being repaired.Camping luckily so
    had our Caravan with us... thumbnail_CCF01292021_00000 (2).jpg

    Are your trees the same age?

    If you are asking me Odif.....Our trees look as if they are of a different age to each other and as we have only lived here for 6 + years we do not know any of the history the actually property was built in 1801 and this tree was planted well before the electric cables came across its path resulting in us having to abide by the safety laws and keep it looking very sad after 'pruning' so often..
    We have lost some trees an Olive tree to a storm, sad about the loss of that tree ..apple peach plum and a pear tree, all very old but still would have been good to have them back
    . We have a row of Hazel Trees that give us shade.. luckily the electric cables we had across the garden in two places have now been re routed, so we do not have to hard prune them any more...
    We have off the top of my head...1 Apple left..several Pears and Plums, 1 Fig ,Couple of Elders that the bird love love and a few others that I cannot name..! Walnut Tree.
    Some do grow better than others and it is hard to know same with the shrubs some bloom well others struggle.I have got a lot of photos but these give you some idea of the garden and and we have 2 Fir Trees

    I think you might have been referring to the original poster..but no problem, I did get in a muddle with the photos a tad though.....kept trying to edit them...
