My fruit trees
« on: March 30, 2015, 08:21:09 PM »
Blossom is appearing on the fruit trees:

1st is my apricot (not forgetting the white sprouting broccoli to its side)
2nd is my Greengage
3rd is my Victoria Plum

It is only their 2nd year so not expecting too much but who knows I may be surprised! Last year there was just one plum and not even that was suitable for eating. Not much happening on the plum tree but the buds are greening up so shouldn't be too long before that is also showing some blossom.

I've had blossoms on my apricot tree for about a fortnight now (Flavorcot). God knows how many are still on there after the gales we've had over the last two days!

The pear tree is also showing advanced signs of leaf bud & my Bardsey Island apple is budding nicely, the Scrumptuous apple is a bit slower.

The fruit blossoms are all but over down here with masses of tiny fruits in evidence. June drop should be interesting this year after the mild spring we've had. The other thing about a mild spring is it usually the proliferation of wasps and hornets. Get those jam-jar traps ready!
