I have had a pear tree which I bought as one of three (the others are apple and plum) miniatures about three years ago and it has finally fruited. I pruned the apple tree to ensure no crossing branches and to keep the centre open. Do I/should I do the same for this pear tree? If the plum tree ever fruits will the same principle apply? I have included a photo. Sorry the only way I could do it.
The Conference pear tree has produced some flowers but never set fruit and the Victoria plum has never produced flowers. They are all in the same full sun, soil - clay, but reasonably drained and heavily mulched every year. Any ideas why no fruit or suggestions to change it?
