Hello everyone, we are in the process of planning a little orchard
We will be doing about 3 apple trees, a peach and a nectarine. However, the best location is on a southern slope, so the soil will warm up earlier in the spring causing the tree to bloom early and be more susceptible to a late frost :/
I am in western KY (7a) so our winters aren't too extreme but it is pretty common for us to have an oddball late frost.
Any thoughts on whether this is a big enough concern to find a new location or if there is anything I could do to mitigate? Thanks
