Bramley Apple Trees

bramley seedling apple tree

Anonymous added on June 3, 2015 | Answered

I have a small Bramley tree bought last year. It had a few apples on it but they dropped off. This year it blossomed well, but the blossoms went off and seemed to form small apples that just went brown and fell off. Would be grateful for any advice as to stop this from happening.

Actually, it sounds like you have a pollination problem. It is getting more common now that honeybees are in peril. The trees will abort any fruit that come from flowers that are not properly pollinated. You need to take steps to attract pollinators to your yard.
