late apple drop?
On 1st July, 2 of my apple trees: a Cox (orange pippin) and a braeburn, were full of apples for the first time ever (Cox is about 4-5 years old and Braeburn is only 2-3). Yesterday, each of them had only 1 apple left after all the other dropped on the ground. I also have 2 dwarf spurs and a russet (Egremont) which have still about the same quantity of fruit as 2 weeks ago. I am wondering whether anyone else has had the same problem, or knows if it's weather related (I'm in Lancs). There doesn't seem to be any pest, though the Cox' leaves are now getting ugly browny edges... Thanks for any advice.
