[NAFEX] Ailing apricots (and nanking cherries)

I have had Nanking cherries for 20 years and only one good harvest. 
My son lives a little north of Minneapolis has huge crops every year.
I had no cherries last summer.  I think spring frosts kill the
flowers.  Nanking cherry are very hardy but it looks like the flowers
are not.  They make good pies.  Flavor is not the same as tree
cherries, different but good.  Pain to get the pits out.  Cherries
are too small for cherry pitter.
