    I purchased a AMBROSIA apple tree 3 years ago, with fruit on it.
    However, since then I have had no flowers or fruit. The tree is growing and is healthy.
    What is wrong? Please advise.

    No flowers = no fruit. Otherwise, when it starts flowering again you will probably need to have an additional, cross-compatible cultivar present to get good cropping. Another important point about apple trees, as with other orchard fruits is that you must select locally adapted cultivars for satisfactory results. Is this one known to be suitable for this region?
