The Q&A Archives: tree fruits

Question: i 've planted a cherry and pear tree for three years. Every year they have flowers came out but after that the flowers dropped off. they didn't make any fruits (Like the flowers get burned).
Please tell me what i could do to make the trees get fruits for next year.

Answer: Although there are diseases that might cause what you describe I'm more inclined to think that either you have ornamental cherry and pear trees and they'll never set fruit or, if you have a fruiting cherry and pear tree, you'll need a second one of each for pollination. Try to find out which cultivars they are so you'll be able to plant the cultivars that will serve as good pollinators for your trees.

Best wishes with your garden.
