I just checked the Scout apricot. The tree is almost ready to flower.
Way too early for here altho we're having a warm spring this year, we
still have 3-4 weeks before last frost on a cold year.
Jerry that's great advice, I have Sungold & Manchurian apricots that
flower but never put on fruit for many years, so what you say makes a
lot of sense.
