Miniature Apricot Tree, Death or Dormant?
In winter I purchased 2 miniature fruit trees, one being apricot and the other nectarine. I potted them both in a large tub (52 litre) with compost and placed them under the eave of the house in morning sun. It's now just gone spring, and the nectarine tree has blossoms and leaves forming while the apricot developed the makings of 2 buds, but these went brown and nothing has happened since. Could this tree be dead? What has happened?
