Cherry problem
« on: June 19, 2018, 12:21:09 pm »
I have several varieties of cherries. This year they all blossomed dramaically and grew vast numbers of young cherries... then they all dropped off. Is this a case of cherry trees don't do a 'june drop' and therefore was overburdened and dumped the lot? Is the solution to thin them out in extraordinary years?
Plums and gages fine and this is wales.. so never too dry
And to answer my own question

Interesting. Thanks for link.
Never thought of a light reflecting mulch- I get they mean pale coloured wood or something but wonder if perforated silver space blanket would help my apples rippen? Would only be needed for few months.

Sorry about your cherrys.
