All My Fruit Trees Looks Healthy but Fruits Are Falling
What should I do? My cherry, nectarine, peach and plum tree have lots of fruit but this week I notice fruit are falling. All of these plants are two years old.

Premature fruit drop is normally the result of poor pollination or an insect problem. Overbearing is another possibility. When the fruit is pea size, begin thinning to prevent fruit drop. This will reduce the energy of the tree so it can put more into the production of fruit. If pollination/fertilization is at too great a level for the tree to sustain, all of the set fruit will simply drop. You can also thin the blossoms rather than the fruit.
