Pollination of apple trees

We have two Bramley Seedling apple trees, using James Grieve and Cox's Orange as polinators. Our problem is that both pollinators come into flower before the Bramleys, and therefore no pollination can take place. How can we remedy this situation. We live in the Cordoba area of Spain, very hot weather June to August, temperate for the rest of the year. What other pollinators can you suggest.

Re: Re: Pollination of apple trees

Thanks for your list of apples trees, which I have printed, it will be usseful. The problem is, that we have James Grieve and Coxs Pippin as pollinators, but they finish flowering before the Bramley starts to flower. Can you suggest a remedy. Thanks, Janice
