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,

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.
