Any special tips for getting more apple buds on my delicious apple tree?
Hi Joy, I'm Cindy. Yes, I have a tip for you. As you may know, bees are on their way to becoming extinct. We have had declining numbers in the last few years. You may want to self-pollinate your apple trees. I self-pollinate my vegetable garden. It's easy. Just give the branches slight "jiggling" so that pollen from one bud will fall on another bud. For my tomato plants, I either flick the stalks or lightly shake them. It has made huge differences when harvesting. I read that un-pollinated plants will yield 10% - 15% of the plant's capacity. Pollinated plants will yield 90% - 95% of its capacity. Crazy, right? Big difference. Wishing you all the best.
