Loss of apples
Hi, I have a dwarf apple (Discovery) in a large container and each year it starts off covered in blossom and then small fruit but I only have one or two left by the time harvest comes. Every day, at the moment, I am noticing babies dropping. I put manure and home made compost on the tree twice a year. I water and mulch it and it's in a pretty sheltered spot. The tree itself looks pretty happy with no problems I can see with the bark or the leaves. It looks like I will have only one or two apples again this year. Disappointing. Any thoughts?
