Last year was not a normal year at all for us. With record breaking March temperatures, the trees woke from their winter slumber with a great show of colour and our apricots were in full bloom by March 28th 2012. Normal apricot bloom should be in early - mid May. We were 5 weeks early at Easter in 2012. This was the earliest bloom in our records. This year, is looking like more of a normal year for temperatures, the trees are still in their winter dormant state and we are starting with our spring pruning and preparation for this upcoming season. Happy Easter!
