Smile growing Almond trees

Two yrs ago my four almond trees flowered profusely, and gave me a huge crop. Last year, and this year, there are sparse flowers on all four,so the crop will be poor. What should I do to to them to hopefully get a better crop foor next year?

I never grew almond trees when we lived in California, but I know that they do not self polinate. There is a brisk business in California for bee keepers that rent out hives of bees to polinate the almond orchids.

My first guess is that lack of bees in your area may be your problem.

I'm assuming that you live in California. The link below will take you to a University of California website where you can find how to locate your county extension service.

Agriculture and Natural Resources - University of California - County offices

They can give you specific advice on the lack of flowers.
