What a beautiful and warm March we had! The birds sang, the flowers bloomed, and the fruit trees became confused.
One of the major reasons for not getting fruit from your Apples, Peaches, Cherries and other fruit trees is erratic spring temperatures.
On sunny Friday, I was working in one of my client's gardens and saw a beautiful but unfortunate sight:
This all happened too early in our season for our climate. Trees benefit from the temperatures slowly warming from winter into spring.
The good news for this customer is that the tree had only been planted last year and would not have produced fruit this year any way. The bad news however is that had this tree been older, we would have had to wait until next year's blooms.
And now you know!
