why have my soft fruits no flowers?
Hi, this year i bought three fruit trees from wilkos and potted them and put them on the patio. Theyve seemed really healthy, especially my gooseberry and raspberry, although my blackcurrant had a few teething problems with a few leaves dropping off. it seemed to stabilise and flowers seemed to be forming. then they simply withered and dropped off whilst the rest of the plant carried on growing.
Again, with my raspberry and gooseberry, very healthy, growing well, but no sign of flowers at all. What's going on? I looked in the garden centre at other fruit trees and like mine- some seem to be green tall and healthy with no flowers and some seem to be stunted with a few flowers and some browning. At what stage should these fruits be, and can i hope for anything at all from them this year? gooseberry on the right of the pic, blackcurrant left and raspberry foreground. Thanks a lot!
