I'm in Flintshire on havy clay soil.
My apples are looking good, my green gage just about OK and a medlar very good.
But my Victoria plum has had very few fruits; we had the wettest winter for 10 years, no particular events but well above average rain for every month from November to April. I'm told that Victoria's don't like it too wet.
I had no fruit at all on two pear trees despite a reasonable show of flowers. My quince also flowered fairly well, but I only have one fruit.
At Tatton, I asked the the lady from the RHS about it and she thought it was down to lack of feeding.
So that's what I will do next March
