I warned someone not to plant out houttynia chameleon but she did...defiantly.  She bought a number of them,,wanted her whole garden covered with houttynia.  Dread to think what it's like now

I also wonder if Elstar is a spur bearer...if not you will be pruning off flowers.  Tip bearers are not suitable for this trained style

Hiya Blossom, without checking..and I don't know Elstar...it sounds like pollination problem.  You may need to get another variety....even grown in a pot....to help with this


I grow espalier pears....one espalier and 3 cordons....and all are full of blossom.  They were chosen to help pollination
