Unproductive fruit trees ?
We moved into our house in Nov 2012 and were told we had a cherry, apple and pear tree. Maintenance has been non existant and as a result, blossom was minimal and no sign of any fruit last year, whilst houses on either side had fruit in abundance. What should I do with these trees ?
Apple tree we think. Blossom minimal, lots of congested branches.
Pear tree we think, looks pretty ropey, can we save it. It is the trunk on the right hand side.
Cherry, already in flower a bit now, but no sign of any fruit last year. This is in the centre of our lawn.
They previously had been in a fairly shady garden and last year we cut trees back so a lot more light in the garden now.
Any advice gratefully received. We'd love to have lovely fruit trees with amazing blossom, but I'm wondering if we should start again, which would rather not do if possible.
thanks for any help given.
