Apricot Trees Fail to Bloom
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
