I put this espalier apple in about seven years ago. I've never had an apple from it. This year the only blossom on it is that tiny splotch on the right - so, no fruit again this year. I'm fairly such something much off all the budding tips in March - leaving bare branches. I'm glad at least it has some leaves. It's west facing - all afternoon sun. I'm wondering if I should give up and put something in that's happier and hardier. I have to water it every week, still, in the summer, because it's in an odd spot, and seems to need it.
I also have no blossom at all on two crab apple trees I put in three years ago. I'm sad about that. I was so looking forward. 😕
