I think the problem was more likely to be lack of pollinating insects because of the weather, it happens as well when there is a lot of rain at flowering time. Apple trees are pretty hardy. The flowers will drop off if not pollinated anyway. Is there another apple tree near you that pollinates your Braeburn? You can't grow fruit on a lone apple tree, it needs another of the right pollinating group.
