bramley apple tree
Hi. I planted 3 trees 2 years ago. 1 bramley, 1 pear, and 1 braeburn. All 3 had fruits last year, however, the bramley had some sort of bugs on it, so we sprayed it with the soapy water and sprayed daily. This seemed to have gotten rid of the problem, however this year both the pear and braeburn are doing brilliantly. Although the bramley looks fantastic, I have no fruit (or flowers). I do have lots of red dots which have now appeared all over the leaves and some have started curling. We have opened and checked for bugs/eggs and there aren't any. We are unsure what to do? Do we dig it out and re plant another, or cut it back to the bottom and hope next year takes? Please help (digging out would be last resort as id like to give it a proper chance).
