Message: I have a dwarf apple tree growing in a pot. It has 2 varieties on the one stem - James Grieve and Coxs Pippin. I got it 3 years ago from a nursery and at the time it was 5years old. It produced 25apples in the 1st year, 4 last year and 1 this year from the James grieve section. The pippin section looked very bare all summer - hardly any leaf and no fruit. Can anyone tell me what to do to remedy this?It was repotted 2 years ago.

Message: I bought and planted three fruit trees - apple plum and pear - two years ago - the plum and the apple are growing well but the pear has a red blister disease (apparently this does not affect the fruit and I have stuff to treat it with) however I have yet to see any fruit from any ofthem ! what can I do to boost them or is there an issue with pollination (my neighbour just over teh hedge has somefab fruit trees that produce loads!
