upcoming freeze and blooming fruit trees
With a day or two close to 80 degrees and warmer temperatues in early March, I knew we might have some trouble. A lot of our plums, apriums, pluots and a few peaches and nectarines have started blooming. Some are in full bloom but no leaves yet. With this crazy weather, we are supposed to get down to 30-32 degrees nightly on Sunday,Monday, and Tuesday. What kind of effects should I expect from these temperatures? Is there any recommended protection? We have about 25 fruit trees blooming and some are pretty big. It's a very disappointing weather forecast!
