I take mine right down so there are about 3-4 inch stems left.  Did mine last weekend, which was later than normal, but other stuff got in the way

Sorry Verdun, I must be being a bit thick.  How is it a pollination problem if there are no flowers to pollinate?

Amazing how quickly it gets too hot for digging holes πŸŒžβ˜€οΈπŸŒž  Instead the hammock is getting its first airing of the year.  Don't think I've ever been able to lie in it whilst my tulips are still in flowerπŸ™€πŸŒ·.....its been a strange old weather year

A pollination problem will stop fruit forming, but wouldn't stop it flowering. And obviously no flowers means no hope of fruit.   Are they young trees?  Maybe Elstar is taking longer to get its roots down and get mature enough to fruit?  We have 4 varieties of apple, all planted at the same time and in the same area, and they have all matured at different rates. 6 years on and finally all have blossom this year.

I've been thinking about you lots LilyP - big ((hugs)) to you all.  They are making such progress in understanding these conditions, so hope for the future, but worrying times nonetheless.  Hope they find a way of adjusting to their new normal, so that it is different, but happy and fulfilling too.
