Hi, my apple tree has not yet blossomed, is it too late now for this year?

    Yes, most apple trees bloom early in the season, during spring, so it might already be too late. One reason that this may have happened is that the tree was planted alone. Surprisingly, you cannot plant some apple trees by themselves and have it bear a bountiful amount of fruit. The reason for this is that a single tree cannot pollinate itself, in fact you need to plant at least one other tree with it. Therefore they are able to help pollinate each other, otherwise known as cross pollination. If another tree is not there, then it will not be pollinated and therefore not blossom. There are, however, some trees that are self-pollinating, but also tend to have more apples when planted with another.
