Protecting a flowering peach tree
Are there any measures that can be taken to protect peach trees that are flowering from the ravages of a late freeze?
Our local weather is shaping up well here. We still have some snow on the ground, although most of it is now melted. Snow on the ground in Iowa tends delays the warming of the air too rapidly, and this should make for a later spring, later flowering of peach trees, and less likelihood of a late freeze killing the blooms.
Are there any human interventions that encourage later flowering, and protect trees from a late freeze?
