Bees on the job give them 12 degrees Celsius, they will work all day, sunny or cloudy.

I find these products a good combination as a second or late bud swell spray on the cherries.
Jenny and Molly in the trees.
I want to finish with a Mark Twain quote which as an orchardist I find apt at this time of year.
Best wishes to all.
