We never get any apples
Hello, we have 5 apple trees that were about 5 years old when we moved here 13 years ago. I don’t know the varieties. Every year except for 2019, they have all dropped every single apple when they are tiny. In 2019, we finally got a moderate crop of apples, and they were lovely. I thought a corner had been turned, but we are back to zero apples again this year. We are in south west wales, it’s mild, but an exposed site, well drained land, usually an excess of rain. They are growing in grass. We do have tall mixed wild hedges acting as a windbreak around the area but not close to the apples. I had thought that the wind was the problem and that our garden is just not suited to apples, but what about 2019? Also, in our previous home, we had two cankered, ancient, neglected apple trees that always produced masses of lovely apples every year. What makes them discard every apple?
