peach tree not blooming

Posted by acie NJ (My Page) on

I have a young 6' tall peach tree that looks healthy on the outside and has plenty of swollen pink buds but they are not opening up.NOt one. while similar tree nearby is in full bloom.

I inspected the tree up close and I don't see any problems with the tree.

Any ideas what may be causing this ? Or how to address it ?

I'll try to attach a close-up picture taken with phone.

It looks just fine to me. It may just be a later bloomer than the other tree.

RE: peach tree not blooming

The problem is that a similar tree(same age and type) is in full boom since a few days ago. In aditton, this same tree did the same thing last year although I attributed to being perhaps a little young.

Any ideas on what to do ? I'd like to keep it, but if it doesn't bloom I'll chop it down...

Serious? LOL!! Give it some time

Your saying it did the same thing last year? Then just wait a bit longer. It is only the start of spring.

Put the ax away my friend.
