Pear Trees
Q.

My non-bearing fruit aristocrat pear tree isn’t blossoming like it should.

Zone Las Cruces, NM 88005 | Anonymous added on March 17, 2020 | Answered

This tree is about 10 years old. It used to completely blossom and was beautiful but for the past couple of years it just blossoms sporadically. A few blossoms here and there. What can I do to get all the blossoms back?

Ornamental pears need sun, water and nutrition to bloom well. A soil sample is probably in order. Fire blight disease is a common problem in these trees. Prune out infected branches. Here's two articles that should help:
