Hand pollinating

I've got about 12 apple trees in my garden and they are just producing blossom. For the last two years we've had either strong winds and/or hail at this time of year and the blossom has disappeared. I've had a modest crop of apples but I was wondering whether it might be worth trying to hand pollinate? Does anyone have experience of this?
When you're sitting in your car, don't complain about the traffic. You are the traffic.
Have a look at my website with lots of photos, recipes and books
