Default Re: What is blooming in your garden today (other plants)?

Sometimes it is hard to decide to graft when the tree is in bloom. But I did graft anyway. Here's my late bloomer. Already the Japanese and Russian plums have shed petals and have fruitlets. The cherries and the nankings are in full bloom right now. The peaches and nectarine flowers are already waning. The European plums and the Native american plums are still at budswell. This plant alone have more than 10 prunus species or prunus hybrids grafted together, including almonds. It will have apricots next year. Perhaps within 2 years after some of the pluot plant patents have expired, I will graft those also.

So far it has several sweet Cherries, Japanese Plums, European Plums, Russian Plums, White Peach, Yellow Peach, White Nectarine, Yellow Nectarine, and one each of Almond, non-patent Aprium, non-patent Plumcot, non-patent Peach Plum hybrid, Cherry plum hybrid, and a couple of Nanking cherries.
