Default Spindle Tree

When bought this had flowers and was very attractive. Last year it did not
blossom. This spring I pruned it and it has lots of new growth but, alas,
no flowers. What have I done wrong? PS Great group, and sooo friendly and
helpful. Cagga

I guess that you pruned off all the fruiting buds. Don't prune it
again now. Leave it till it has flowered and set its berries next
year and only prune after the berries have gone.
Beware they are poisonous!
