I've got a Cox's Orange Pippin, purchased 3 years ago as a large specimen....and ive had 2 apples from it! Last year we planted a James Grieve near by, and that hasn't done too well either. I went back to the garden centre, and the advice was to be patient. There is a huge ancient old Apple tree in the field next to our garden so we didn't think that pollination would be an issue. Would love to know if there is anything we can do to encourage more fruit.....as patience for 4 years is stretching it for me!
