HOW TO KEEP APRICOT FLOWERS?
Heat-loving apricots often bloom when there is still a threat of spring frosts. To delay the awakening of the trees before the buds bloom, I make a blue spray: I dilute 300 g of copper sulfate in 10 liters of water and add 400 g of slaked lime to neutralize the acid. With this freshly prepared Bordeaux liquid (the next day it loses its benefit), I process the branches and bark of the trunk.
Another option is to spray the apricots with a solution of urea (urea) with the addition of copper sulfate (500 g of urea and 50 g of copper sulfate per 10 liters of water). This procedure will delay flowering for 1-2 weeks, destroy wintering pests and fungal spores. In addition, nitrogen is a good spring top dressing.

VACCINATIONS FOR “APRICOT-APRICOT”
In my yard I have an early flowering apricot that suffered from the May frosts. A neighbor advised to plant late-ripening apricot seedlings in the crown of this “rush” – for example, varieties Kostyuzhensky, Special Denisyuka, Favorit, Iskra (the tree should not be more than 10 years old). And in the fall, he cut off the strong top shoots of his Favorite, which I wrapped in a thick layer of foil and stored in the basement. And in the spring, when the snow is melting, the apricot seedlings are transferred to a damp cloth and stored in the frost until grafting – until about the end of April, when the apricot begins to prepare for flowering.
One of the easiest ways is bark.
And the secret to a successful spring vaccination is that the offspring should still be asleep and the herd should already wake up. It is important to make the incisions with a sharp, disinfected knife, and the incision site should be as clean as possible. And it is necessary to ensure tight contact of tissues at the site of the reserve, that is, the transplant site should be tightly tied and fixed.
A word to the specialists
Spring blue spraying is an effective method of disease and pest prevention, and grafting late varieties of apricots into the crown will definitely increase your dessert set in the summer. But neither of these events will have a significant impact on the timing of the flowering of cultivar trees, as it is determined directly in the plant’s genome.
