Q.First Year After Planting a Fugi Apple Tree

skwraoe1 added on March 19, 2011 | Answered

It is now spring and the tree is “alive” but the buds are not coming out, although they are there, and they are a gray color. What is going on? What can I do to help this tree?

If the plant is still alive, then I would give it a little more time. While it is spring, tress rely on more than the temperature to tell them when to grow. For example, the amount of light a tree gets plays a large role in how and when it starts to grow. The days are getting longer and the tree should start to open its buds when the light it gets is long enough.
