    Do you get flowers? I had this issue with all the fruit on my property and finally figured out they weren't getting pollinated. I started hand pollinating with an artist brush and started getting fruit on my property. Now I have bee hives. Now I check the flowers for pollinators because many things bloom here when it's too cold for the bees to fly. So I check just in case and can always pull out my paint brush if I don't see any pollinating going on.

    @freemotion I do get blooms, and they do set fruit...it's just such a small amount. These bushes have never 'thrived'. When I planted them I built raised beds for them and filled the beds with pine mulch and peat moss. They're about 6 years old and this year they look like they're barely hanging in...
