Why doesn't my 5 year old loquat bear not fruit even though it has lots of foliage

This tree is in a back garden where other citrus and vegetables are grown. There are lots of birds and insects in this area. I know that loquats like slighly acidic soil. I have given this tree garden gold and worm fertiliser.

Hi Angela,

Generally speaking loquats are easy to grow and like a rich but well drained soil. If they are a older variety they can take some time to actually fruit more than five years,newer grafted species are quicker.Yates Dynamic Lifter and worm fertiliser are the right things to use but also try using some potash that is essential for preventing fungal problems and helping flower and fruit.
