we have a good size cherry tree but thelast 2 years wehavehad no cherrys from it . it has grown them and a lot but well before they turn red they are taken off the tree and dropped on the ground and just left . we have wind mills up all round the tree so do not think its birds . but we do have a lot of cat in and out ofthe garden . can you help



Not likely to be cats - the most likely explanation is not enough water at the roots - this would cause the fruit to drop prematurely, as the tree will sacrifice it in order to survive. Cherries are shallow rooting, and thus inclined to dry out rather quickly, so its sensible to make sure its well watered when the fruit has formed until you're ready to pick.
