Have gained orchard of several mature fruit trees. No apples yet on the Spartan tree - does this mean there won't be any or are they just very slow? Thanks

Lots of us have either none or hardly any this year.  My trees have around ten between them.  I noticed that the orchard at the Weald & Downland museum didn't have any either.  Looks like a bad year for apple lovers.

My apple tree has set about a tenth of what it usually would. I think cold weather at blossom time kept the pollinators at home.
