Hi, My plum tree has blossomed for the first time and i am over the moon as it nearly died last year! however the forcast shows a fall in temperature. I live in yorkshire and we will be experiencing temperatures as low as 5 degrees in the day and 0 degrees at night. should i protect the blossoms with fleece?



You can try if it is a small tree... snag is the sap is well and truly up in everything and any frost is going to cause damage we've got plants in flower that we know are going to get hit!

It is a very small tree, a dwarf.

Then totally cover with fleece and good luck!
