Otherwise Healthy Candy Mint Crab Apple Tree Has Very Few Blossoms

Question From: B. Douglas - Gorham, Maine, United States
Q: Our Candy Mint Crab Apple tree is 3 yrs. old...First 2 yrs., it blossomed beautifully...this spring it hardly has any blossoms...otherwise looks healthy...it gets 6 hrs. of sun/day...can you tell me why this happened and what I can do so it will blossom again ?? Thanks.

A: Late season frosts combined with unseasonsable warm temperatures in late winter and early spring probably damages the flower buds. Hopefully the weather will co-operate better next year. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
