May and it’s the turn of the apple trees

Updated: Sep 16

In may in the orchard we have 1 eating apple (Falstaff ) 1cooking apple (Arthur turner) and two crab apples (John Donnie) (red sentinel). All are in bloom now the crab apples help fertilise the other two apples. The quince is about to burst in to blossom another week should see that in bloom .

I hope we get some sun this week that will bring out the bees and hover flies to do the pollinating.

The hostas have pushed their heads up around the pond and will give some shade to the fish the middle of may is when the gold fish start chasing each other , so hopefully we will have some babies again this year.

Well that’s all until the end of may.
