After days of obsessive observation of the fruit trees, I see that shuck split time has finally come. For the first time, my Harglows have set a real [potential] crop, and I see plenty of cherries and J plums.
From now on, only worry lies ahead.
Itilton that is great news! My blossoms are still on my trees and I'm in a warmer zone. Don't get that. Good on you for your cots. They are so hard to grow for me, but I just put in two new guys the other day. One Harglow (again) and one Tomcot. Did you plant Tomcot? Its been highly recommended.
