Remember last April? I remember the damage across the eastern US as snow, ice and record cold temperatures wreaked havoc with plant material. Devistating cold did significant damage from Michigan to as far south as Georgia and Alabama. These extreme cold temperatures followed an early spring warmup in March that forced flowering and tender growth. Dormancy was broken and there was no turning back. Now it’s “crunch time” (see story below) for this spring. We already know that a slow gradual “wake up” is occuring this year. Once dormancy is broken, let’s remember……..let’s hope…….that history doesn’t repeat itself.
