Last year was fantastic for most fruit. We had masses of blossom, a few fine days, and that must have done the trick. But, as has been said, a wonky Spring in 2012 has almost certainly ruined pollination time. Actually, there was half the blossom this year, so that definitely counted. I can hardly find anything on my trees. Can any experts here say why we get heavy blossom Springs? Can it be the hard previous winter or longer term influences?
