Thanks Sarah, maybe if I have a bit more success next year, I'll feel more confident to try an apricot. As I said, they are one of my favourites.

Keep us posted how your young ones turn out. Which varieties do you have?

Hi Caren,

Plant some apricots! There are a couple of trees planted and ignored by the city that fruit regularly in zone 3b Edmonton!

Mine out in the country have never fruited, but they are young and have never blossomed either!

zone 3
Edmonton, AB

Doug thanks for the advice, I adore apricots but seem to rememebr someone on NAFEX commenting that I could probably plant one up here but I would never get fruit, so I haven't been brave enough to try one, especially after this spring's losses.

Fruit optimists of the North unite!
