Winter blossom from the Autumn Flowering Cherry is a boon for us and for birds that feed on the insects blossoms attract, and for birds and insects needing nectar. Autumn conditions affect the following season’s blossom on trees, especially non-native ones as, in autumn, the sugars built up in leaves are transferred more specifically to bud-development. The good autumn this year bodes well for this year’s blossom- as shown today in our Autumn Flowering Cherry blossom crop. This great tree for small gardens will flower till March and also has attractive autumn leaves. Conditions: Light cloud and drizzle Unlike the sun you are getting, Sian, in Southern Spain!!). Temperature: Max 6- Min 6C.p.birds.12 001.jpgIMG_2881.jpg
