Egremont Russet

A friend has asked what should she do, if anything, about her apple tree that has flower buds and open blossom now.

    Take a dated photo of it and send a copy to Alok Sharma with a request that it be used as a backdrop to all of the Cop 26 meetings?

    (Alok Sharma is the British cabinet minister who is serving as President for COP26).
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    As pansy alludes to, it's likely down to weather/climate conditions.
    I had a few flowers on my Katy a couple of weeks ago.
    So long as it's not covered in bloom (which may indicate 'something' else) enjoy the flowers while they last.

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    My Egremont Russet has done the same in the past. It's an unseasonal treat for a hungry bee if nothing else but it didn't seem to do much harm.

  • Many thanks all. Will pass this onto our friend.
