APPLE BLOOMING NOW! UPSTATE NY
Today I found this apple blooming blooming today. Has anyone had this experience?
It is not unusual for a few blossoms to appear, especially after the unusually warm fall we are having. I don't know if this can ever lead to a premature bloom over the entire tree (maybe someone reading this does) but I've often seen a few blossoms before trees go into normal dormancy and flower the following spring.
Q. In reading and re-reading your posts about your spray schedule I am confused as to whether to apply the post bloom sprays every two weeks throughout the season or just twice post bloom and that's it?
Just twice, if you are lucky. Almost always adequately protects apples and pears here- well not so reliably pears. I can e-you the schedule if you contact me.
Last fall I had a pear tree in Hudson valley flower,. This fall the tree had so much fruit branches broke. What town are you in?
I am seeing the same thing on one of our blueberry shrubs. Just a few blooms, and the bees have found them, so there will be a few green berries when frost comes in a week or two.
I am in Purling/ Roundtop area. Exit 21 on NYS Thruway. Right out of Cairo
