My Jubeli and plum stopped growing fruits in last two years, but they still grow plenty of flowers. What happened to them?

If they produced fruits in the past and are still flowering but not producing fruits now, about the only explanation is lack of pollination. If there are no bees visiting the flowers, the flowers won't produce fruits. This can happen if you use lots of insecticides in your garden, or if the weather is cold when the trees are in flower. Cold weather keeps bees from being active. As long as your trees look otherwise heatlhy, you'll just have to hope the flowers are pollinated next year so they produce fruit. Wish there were something you could do about the situation!
