> A while back I read a summary of some prof. at MU trying to delay blossom by spraying the whole tree with a dilute latex paint/water mix. The idea was to keep the sun off the buds as well as the trunk. Can't remember how long it supposedly delayed bloom, but I'm thinking it was a weeks delay.
Interesting, Mark. I might try that next year. I did wonder when I
painted the trunks how far up I was supposed to go.
And my neighbors think I'm loony already, so I might as well go all the way.
