Why is my pistachio nut tree not flowering or fruiting after 3 years? I've been growing it in a pot

    I don’t know if you can get a harvest in the UK but I think you need a male and female tree as they are not self-pollinating?

    Yes, you need a pair.  I have one too and love it for its foliage.  No idea if it's a boy or a girl yet - 3 years old - and no opportunity to go looking for a met at the mo either.
