Our coldest temperature was -38° on January 27 with a snow cover of approximately 36 inches. On the average, our g started about one week earlier than last year but on May 22, we had a hard freeze of +22°F — so that took care of the stuff that had already bloomed for the year. Luckily, most of the apples had not opened their blooms yet.
To understand this report: under “survival”, the numbers mean the percent of winterkill and “slight’’ means three inches or less, under “bloom”, the U stands for under snow and the B means that it has bloomed or will bloom this year. Under “Roundup damage”, it means just what it says.
I’m still showing Roundup damage on a few trees but it is considerably better than last spring.
Also, I would appreciate some feeback from you on how well your trees survived.
