It really does give you some satisfaction, I didn't go out today now to check on them, trying to at least give it a day or two so i get to see a bigger improvement

I go out first thing in the morning before work and then again after work, sometimes a couple of seedlings have popped up in the interim, greatly satisfying !

My James Grieve apple trees are in full flower at the moment ,the Victoria plums have a few blossoms as does a Green gauge and pear trees, but all the cider trees and a damson have nothing yet.
