Last year I planted 4 trees which had berries.   None of the trees had berries this year.  Any ideas why?

Someone else asked a similar question a couple of days ago. That thread is here:

Apart from the reasons we gave on the thread linked to above, the  almost continual heavy rain and cool weather which caused a significant lack of pollinating insects this spring is likely to have something to do with it.

Of course it could be a male tree! Has it berried before? If so, then everyone here is right re pollinators etc.
