I planted a lot of plants last yr but here in central Indiana it's been a very below normal spring. I'm particularly worried about my 2 yr old Belle of a Georgia peach tree. It's now April 18 and she hasn't budded out yet, is this a legitimate worry, or am I getting all shook up over nothing?
Thanks,
Paul

Do you suspect freeze damage. Stone fruits like peaches will typically tolerate low temperatures well. If your Spring has been as slow as , or slower than, ours, I would give it a little more time. I am just now noticing buds on my peach tree.

Everything is running behind due to a colder than normal spring. Bend a twig and if it is flexible and doesn't snap then it's still alive, just waiting on the weather to warm up some.
