I was delighted to discover a field packed with sloe bushes whilst out walking with my dogs some months back. Making a mental note of where they were I have been back today (mid august) to check on progress of growing sloes. Unfortunately I found that there wasn't a single sloe in sight - and they are definitely blackthorn bushes. Its too early for them to have been picked off. So why is it that there are no sloes? I am in Cumbria and have seen them growing in other places closeby. Any ideas?
