Chicken chaser....a few things. Pears need other pollinators. Also need pruning.....summer pruning....to induce fruiting spurs rsther than growth. Your riich manure mulches are fine but they encourage vigour. Combined with pruning it will be good.
last summer I summer pruned a pear in a friend's garden.....it has not fruited since planted few years ago. I was there on Tuesday and the tree is now laden with embryonic pears.
