i think this could be a bumper year for fruit, as everything set back a few weeks and loads of flowers and less chance of frost every day and harsh winds hopefully coming to an end in time, huge blossoms on apple trees, gooseberries, blackcurrants, red currants, blueberries and stuff, plums, raspberries and strawberries still to flower. outside of course.

I have ALOT of flowers on two of my trees in particular this year. It would be nothing short of a miracle if one pear tree in particular produced that amount of pears!!!

Do I leave them or should I pinch some off...?

Glad to hear it though, last year was pretty poor except for the strawberries but they never make it as far as the kitchen anyways Laughing Laughing

I hate to rain on everyones parade but were not out of the woods yet, temps to rise over the weekend but we can still get frost up to the end of may and hail showers so be prepared to protect the blossom at night if possible, one good thing I notice bumble bees, hover flies and midges on the wing so that good.
