Blossoms Fall Off After Blooming
Why do my blossoms fall off after they bloom? Stems too. My plum tree has never made plums because the blooms and stems fall off. They make a lot and I have sprayed them before thinking it was a worm or something like that. Nothing helps. Maybe you can help me.

When you get blossoms but no fruit, or when blossoms drop, this is normally an indication of poor pollination. If there are not enough natural pollinators around or if it's grown indoors, the tree will have difficulty producing. This is why we sometimes have to intervene by hand pollinating. Just use a small paint brush and swirl it around the inside of the flower and repeat on all the flowers on the plant. You can encourage additional pollinators to the area for outoor trees.
