Re: Cornish apples

We too are heavy clay soil in Ontario Canada. We have several English varieties in our orchard and they all do well. Shouldn't be a problem. Any questions send email to okeefegrange@yahoo.ca.

Re: Poor Crops

How about winter bud kill. Only had 20 varieties produce fruit last year as compared to 60 the year before. I am located in Ontario Canada. What about lack of bees? Neonics are killing most of the wild bees and my honey bees. But the first problem is with lack of buds. It was too cold, too long.

Lyons Sweet

Looking for any historical information for Lyons Sweet apple. I am wondering if it is suitable for being a new addition to my orchard. I don't even know its uses which would also be helpful.

ARCHIVES

I only possess one email address so it seems that I cannot access the archives. Is there a way around this and has anyone else had this problem? Looking forward to a reply.
