Catherine Monaghan asked 13 years ago

planted 3 trees, apple, pear, plum last year. apple fruited, maybe dozen, v small, fell early. No great hopes for fruit, planted mainly for interest, fruit bonus. If left alone, not pruned etc. will they grow ok? Pear well flowering, apple starting, plum just leaves. Beside the sea, both sides, and garden high and fairly exposed.

Fruit trees have no chance when directly exposed to sea winds. They need shelter. If it can be provided,  either naturally or artificially, you will get some fruit.
