Ha ha good question...!
I misread something posted by someone else and thought that an apple tree might help with pollination.
To be honest I am puzzled as to why it is not fruiting when the plum tree 6 feet away is yet again laden and wonder whether the tree needs more space. It is surrounded gooseberry bushes.
i think I am clutching at straws
It has also been suggested that another Mirabelle tree would encourage pollination and fruit setting
