    Hi everybody
    I'm not sure I'm posting in the right section, so please feel free to move my post if needed. Last year I bought 2 apple trees from a local nursery. They are doing fine and are alive and full of leaves, but they didn't bloom. Is there anything wrong with them or are they too young? They were in bloom last year, when I bought them.
    Also, a pear tree that I bought at the same time is blooming just fine.
    Is there anything I'm doing wrong with the apple trees?
    Thank you for your advice.

    It's not unusual for a newly planted apple tree to require several years before it starts blooming again, depending on the variety. They often bloom during the year of planting because they formed those buds in the nursery before the shock of transplantation.
