Any idea what these fruits a failing? Pics attached
I've got 60-70 fruit trees, oldest only 8-9 years of age. Every year I plant a few, often to replace winter vole damage, which stopped completely with plastic tree tubes.
I will try to attach pics. One per page it seems. But basically the apples/plums/cherries and pears are in full bloom or have been in the last week.
Yet, about 10 trees of mixed species are barely budding out- some not at all and some, super slow or deformed, some budding but if you touch the buds they fall off with brown showing below bud (toast).
I use NO round up, but some of the damage reminds me of round up damage, especially one plum.
I'm 99% sure this isn't frost damage. The almonds survived blooming. So why would the apples die?
Anyways any info appreciated. Kind of heart breaking!
