Merpet cherry

Following the distinctive developments of the previous 12 months, and a needed break from recording in 2020, it’s good to be again within the orchards recording the blossom as soon as once more.  Nonetheless, the climate this 12 months hasn’t been too variety and, strolling by means of, it was apparent the late frosts had taken their toll on the blossom.  The plum blossom, specifically, exhibited a excessive charge of frost injury, with the injury on some bushes estimated at as much as 80%.  Fairly various cherry and pear varieties had been touched by frost, too, although the apple and quince, blossoming later, seem largely to have escaped its results.

A decrease yield is the more than likely final result of the frosts this 12 months however we must wait and see on the extent of this.  The stage the bushes had been at for bud improvement when the frosts hit will play a component and a few bushes could go on to supply a superb crop despite the fact that their blossom appeared broken.  Nonetheless, this actually received’t be the case for all varieties and a lighter crop is to be anticipated later within the 12 months.  Within the meantime, a stroll by means of the orchards with the bushes in blossom is extremely beneficial and one thing to be loved for now.
