I have 7 espalier fruit trees (3 apple, 2 pear 1 kent cob nut and 1 cherry tree) all planted about 10/11 years ago from a nursery. All but one gives me ample of fruit and that is the Cherry tree. I get plenty of blossom and plenty of fruit appear every year but when they get to about the size of peas 90% shrivel up and end up with just a handful of cherries. This has happened ever since I have had it. Every year I threaten that I am going to cut it down if I do not get any fruit from it. Can any one help please.
