Apples: News, 2017

=====================================


PROBABLE BLOSSOM DATES
It seems likely that apple blossom this year will be later than last year. My flowering plum, which I use as a 'marker' for blossom dates, was in full (90%) bloom this year on 4 Mar, compared with 20 Feb last year, ie. 2-3 weeks later. The apricot plum was 8 Mar, compared with 8 Mar in 2016; however last year it was spread over six weeks, a bit at a time, so the date was difficult to pin down.

First apple blossom last year in this part of South Leicestershire was Pink Pearl (18 Apr) followed by Webster Pinkmeat and Scarlet Surprise (20 Apr).

According to the plum dates I guess we may have some apple blossom around 25-30 Apr with Bramley at around 10-12 May, but much depends on what happens to the weather over the next fortnight.
