Bramley Apple no blossom!
« on: May 19, 2013, 11:24 »
Have a Bramley planted 3 years ago, in its first year had about 20 aplles on, last year quite a lot of blossom but like a lot of folks no fruit( I put it down to the weather). This year only about 5 flowers. I didn't prune as the stucture of the tree seemed fine. Should I be feeding it or is there another remedy.
Taken over neglected veg garden at new home. Enemy number 1 Ground Elder. Then there is the furry terror - bunnies - to contend with!
Made a start have beds established but moved in too late for serious planting. We shall see what 2015 brings.

Blame it on last year's horrible weather

Quote
Just as
a cool wet spring can prevent flowers from setting fruit, inadequate days of
full sun and periods of cool can stop a tree from manufacturing adequate
carbohydrate to invest in flower bud formation for the following year.

No fruit last year for us and two apples that dropped before they were ping pong size, this year it's dripping in blossom so here's hoping
