    A bit of both-it looks like a poor year for growers and gardeners alike

    MY APPLE TREE IS APROX 20 FT HIGH AND ABOUT 20 YEARS OLD AND IS JUST THE SAME AS PETER MARPLE NOT ONE APPLE HAS SET , 

  • Last year I had abumper crop of apples but this year  Ihave not a single one.

  • thanks for your replys been on the web seems that the UK has a shortage of bees because of the wet weather orchards all over the country are suffering with no apples, so my one tree is nothing

    No Apples or Pears this year on our trees.

    No Plums either, plenty of flowers this year which became embryo plums, but seems the heavy rain knocked them off.

    Last year about a thousand on five trees, this year I can see about twenty have survived so far.

    I would be inclined to leave any work till the autumn- when the leaves have dropped off
