We planted two Moorpak Apricot trees eight or nine years ago. They have never had fruit, nor do they even bloom. One tree several years ago had a couple of blooms, but that is ALL. What can I do to encourage blooms (and fruit)? The trees look healthy, as far as I can tell. I live in Sherman, which is in north central Texas. I would appreciate any suggestions you possibly have for my problem.

I would recommend adding phosphorus to the soil. This is likely the cause for not flowering, which means no fruit. This article will explain more: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/phosphorus-plant-growth.htm
