Lack of Apple Blossom

Thanks  Welshonion and Bob,

Swings and Roundabouts this year then, at least we still have the Apple and Pear tree up my Dad's allotment looking pretty good. As you say look on the bright side,

Lack of Apple Blossom

Hi,

I thought my miniature apple was fairing well with the topsy turvey weather, but it looks like I might have no apples this year   Let me tell you what's happened, back in the March heatwave the blossom buds starting forming nicely but only in the central part of the tree, it was watered well and during the bad spell of weather I made sure I covered it with fleece at night, the flowers appeared but only on about 3 spurs.  My query is that now I found that the flower stems have fallen off. Is this no Pollination or the hailstorms have battered them. My other question is the tree looks healthy plenty of spurs but just with leaves on  - will it begin to form blossom buds now or is that it for this year?   Any help appreciated
