Prune Tree Fruit Drop

Hi There I have 2 mature (10years) prune trees. Prune D’Agen & Prune de Sargeant. I get tons of blossom but 99% of fruit drops when the size of the head of a match. I’m 170 metres high in the South coast town of Denmark WA. Nothing I have tried works. Could it not be cold enough to get fruit set. Any ideas welcome. Regards David

Hi David,

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

It could due to lack of potassium which is the element for help fruit settings. We recommend weekly application with 'Yates Thrive Citrus & Fruit Natural Fish & Seaweed+' as a complete plant food, specially developed for boosting healthy grown and yield of juicy fruit in citrus and other fruiting plants. 
Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
