We are in North Shropshire. Apples, very good crop, but a lot of Codlin moth (could not Winter spray as the wind never dropped) and Scab.Plums very poor, both Victoria and Margaret. Damsons well down n normal crop and not ripe yet. Medlar very good and Quince, nothing. Pears ok but again scabby. We had very cold wind when the Plums were in blossom. too cold for the bees.
Strange though that the Wild plum down the lane has the best crop on it for years.
