pears not waking up?
Hello almost every tree in my yard has woke up by now expect 10 European pear trees that I grafted (i got the scions from Santa Cruz CA) I grated them in spring of 2102 and they grew great that year some putting on 5ft of growth. But now none of them are waking up? they aren't dead just still dormant. the varieties are Bergamote Esperen, Beurre d'Anjou, Bergamote d'Et,
Belle Lucrative, Butirra Precoce Morettini, Citron de Carmes, Fondante de
Moulins Lille, Glou-morceau, Le Lectier, Passe Crassane. Could be lack of chill? But, I have some apples rated as very high to high chill and most now are in full bloom? Including smokehouse, Hyde king, newtown pippin, ashmeds kerne,l winesap, westfield seek no further claygate pearmain and others. Are apples just more adaptable to less chill than pears? We get about at total of 700-600 hours below 45 and above 32 each year from dec 1 to march 31.
