I would like to know how old a hawthorn tree has to be before it will flower.



A pure tree 5 to 7 years. A grafted one, 2 to 3 years.

Mine was three years old when planted in the autumn and it flowered the following spring. It's had loads of flowers every year since.

It flowers on last year's wood which is why many roadside hedges have few flowers....
