Several yrs ago I purchased 2 macintosh apple trees. They aren't doing much of anything. Any suggestions? They seem to growing some but few blossums and no fruit yet.

Apple trees take at least five years or so to settle in and begin to bear fruit so this is not too surprising. You can help them establish well by checking the soil fertility and pH, then fertilize and adjust the pH as indicated by the soil tests. An occasional deep watering during dry spells will also help. Your local county extension should be able to help you with the testing and interpreting the results. Good luck with your apple trees!
