I love to garden. My flower beds and yard are forever changing! Since moving to a farm, we have started a huge vegetable garden, too.

5 years after planting these trees, we still had no apples and the trees were good sized trees when planted. We were advised to use a bat rapped in a towel on the trunk to stress the tree and look!!!! We finally have apples!!!

Wow. I have one apple tree and have never gotten any apples. I just thought it badly needed pruned.

@bmnm, I truly thought it was an insane idea but I can't argue now, lol!! It was advised to do this in the spring prior to or at early onset of flowering. Do you have other apple trees in the area?
