The Q&A Archives: Mountain Ash

Question: Why doesn't my Mountain Ash grow berries?

Answer: If your tree produces flowers, it should develop berries at the end of the season. Sorbus (Mountain Ash) grows best in full sunshine with moderate amounts of water during the growing season. If your tree is young, it may take a few more years before it's mature enough to produce berries. If it's been established for 4-5 years and is still not blooming, it may need more sunshine or additional water during the growing season. Sometimes Sorbus bears heavily one year and not the next. Give your tree a little more time and be sure to provide enough water and sunshine to keep it healthy enough to bloom and produce fruit.
