Honeycrisp Apple Tree doesn't bloom
What can I do to get blossoms on my dwarf Honeycrisp and Haral-Red apple trees? Both have been growing in my yard for close to 10 years. My yard is shady and these trees get direct sunlight in summer for only 5-6 hours/ day, but a previous Haralson tree growing in the same spot gave fruit yearly for many years.
I did get 4 blossoms on one of my two trees 3 yrs ago, and I got three apples on it then. I figured that would finally be the start of productive years, but nothing since.
Is there anything I can do to encourage them to produce? Or am I just doomed just to wait? Winter has been tough here in MN, and the snow just went away last week. All our trees are just starting to bud, and temperatures are shooting to 90 tomorrow, so we may finally be out of frost danger... Ya, Right!
Any suggestions or help would be great!
