Fruit and Flowers are Falling Off Before Blooming or Ripening
This year there is something different going on in our garden. We are having the flowers falling off of stems when not opened completely and the fruit seem to fall when not completely ripe/grown.
We are not doing anything different than in past years. Every year we have a good garden, with lush trees, good flowers, and fruit.
How do I get good fruit and flowers?
Hardiness Zone: 10a

Could it be that there is root rot?
I would also check for ants and/or rodents that might be nibbling the roots/branches. (We have/had groundhogs nest in our yard because our neighbor has a veggie garden.)

Try adding 1 T Epsom Salt & 1 T Powdered Milk to 1 gallon of water. The Epsom Salt will promote a strong root system. The powdered milk will add Calcium to the soil & prevent blossom end rot.
