Hello, Can anyone tell me why my pear tree has been covered in blossom the last two years but has not produced fruit. It is in a pot so that it does not get too large for the garden. It is about 3 feet tall and is in approx 15in pot. I am wondering whether it is something to do with pollination and if so, will I need to get another pear tree of the same variety or would perhaps an apple tree do the job. Our next door neighbour has a cherry tree which overhangs our garden but this obviously has not been sufficient. Please help as the shoots are beginning to appear on the tree and I hope to get results this summer. Thank you. Pamela
You need another pear to pollinate it to get fruit - other fruit species won't do.
If you look up your tree on this table, you'll see possible pollinators:
