Hi all, just been out to water my plants and noticed that pratically overnight quite a few  of the newly forming buds on my pear tree have dropped off.( It is planted in a large tub and is 2 years old ) Last year we got bigger fruit buds which were subsequently eaten by something!  Im not having much luck with it....any ideas as to what is happening?

It may well just be dropping some of the young fruits that it cannot bring to fruition this year, the June drop is quite normal, you should still get a good crop.

Ooh thank you for that encouraging remark ! Fancy that, 'June drop' ha ha . Looking forward to a juicy crop later in the year!!
