Last year this little crab apple, Evereste, was a mass of white blossom. In this years faltering spring some blossom has already shriveled, some is open and the rest is yet to open. The main reason for planting it in an orchard is to attract pollinating insects who then go on to pollinate the other apple varieties in the orchard. Sadly there is as yet hardly any other tree in the orchard with blossom, I wonder if this is going to be a very poor year for apples in my landlords orchard?
