ASK A MASTER GARDENER: This year’s birch trees may hinge on last year’s weather
Q: I have a clump of three paper birch trees. This spring, only two branches got leaves, but they never developed. Is there any chance they will come back? Also, I have a problem with my Minnesota State Fair apple tree. In 2012, we had the best crop ever (40 to 50 dozen!). Last year, we only got two dozen, and this spring only had about 12-15 blossoms.
