Fruiting fruit trees
Why did my fruit trees have a bad 2016 ? And what can/should I do differentl.
I have two fruit trees. One is a pear and the other is a plum. I have never cut these back but I do feed with blood fish and bone and I also mulch each year.
I bought these as one year old fruit trees and have had them for the last 4 years.
Year one - no fruit
year two - good amount of fruit on both trees but never fully ripened
year three - good amount of edible fruit on both trees
year four - one plum and no pears.
I understand that it can take upto 5 years to get good crops of fruit but as said above I had good amounts of fruit in the 2nd and 3rd year.
Many thanks for your replys in advance
