Buds on Crabapple most advanced, can see white tips on the eating apple tree and the cooking apple is a but further behind. Both are very elderly though so are doing well! Baby plum tree has a huge number of swelling buds but they're nowhere near ready to open
I've got lots of buds on all my apple trees also on pear and cherry tree. Bexley Kent
My March planted Poundstretcher Gala has a few buds which should just be open in time for Saturday nights frost
I have two identical apple trees growing next to each other. Both fruited well last two years. This year one is full of blossom, the other has nothing at all!
My little tree had lots of buds but they're mostly leaves...I have a few flowers but the poor thing is still suffereing after last year's awful summer. Weshonion advised me that I might have to wait a while for the tree to recover before I see signs of fruit.
Pear and plum both have small buds,the apple tree is slightly behind them,I,m in Somerset.
Got an old apple tree, don't know what, bit like Cox. Only just getting blossom...S.Yorks
Here in York, my apple tree (God knows what variety it is, tried using the apples in all kindsa ways and they're just bleurrrgh) has been in blossom for two days
My ancient Bramley has been in blossom for at least two weeks thank goodnes, as I had about six apples last year due to it being overladen with fruit the year before. Had to hoist it upright and put a pole in ground to support it, poor old thing.
