|All my trees ave budded in December in Ontario. Then they got iced for a couple of days and all the buds froze. I'll be buying my apples next fall. Worse, I worry about the orchards and commercial growers. I suppose they are insured but it will still be a heart breaker for all concerned. |

|I have been having the same worry down here. Everything is budding out early and we often get really cold in Feb or March. Crossing fingers.|

|It hasn't been warm enough for them to bud out here yet, but the last couple of years they have bloomed early, then promptly froze later. I did get a couple apples last year, but none the year before. No peaches, and a hand full of apricots last two years. My Cherries don't seem to be bothered though.|

|Crazy weather can make plants do strange things.
One year we had a crazy spring and that year all the Hawthorne trees flowered in September.

|Strangely enough, we have had a late dormancy here for my mangoes and lychee too. Guess I should have expected it because weather was in the 80's almost all the way through December. Nice and cool now, except we've had record rainfall for January . . nothing usual about this winter.
Usually the mango tree flowers once in Dec. or January, and again in March. So far only one panicle of flowers has appeared. Hoping for a good bloom later in the spring! I had hardly any mangoes last year, too.
