Having trouble with Dogwood

Steve, the year before I put a circle of landscape bricks around my dogwood tree. I put in some flowers and top soil. the flowers grow but the dogwood has not bloomed since this is the second year. Is there anything I can do. I would be greatful for some help.

===================================

Phillip,

How many inches of soil did you place around the truck of your dogwood to create the flower bed.

If the soil around the base of the tree has been raised too much your dogwood is in danger of dying.

You may want to pull back your soil around from the base of the dogwood and create a small well

About the height of the flower bed. This give you tree some breathing room. I would pull back about

A foot or two.

Hope this helps.
