coronet problem

shirley cowan asked 10 years ago

Two years ago I transplanted a Coronet apple tree from a pot directly into the garden. While it has flowered successfully since no apples appeared last year and I have discovered that the flowered buds are falling off now. Before it was transplanted I had successive harvests of apples. What do you think might be the problem? Would root rock cause this to happen as try as I might it doesn’t want to stay still!!

Coronet trees are grafted on very dwarfing roots stocks and it is probably taking a while to adapt to the new conditions, which may not suit it very well. It likes good, open rich soil that does not dry out too much in summer, in a sunny spot.

It does not like competition of other plants and it does not like to be wind-rocked at all.
