Brogdale Blossom Report

Our blossom forecast will be updated once a week.

Follow us for all the details of how the bloom is developing in the orchards. Keep an eye out on this page for your weekly blossom forecast.

Keep your eye peeled of our blossom forecast updates on social media.  Once a week our blossom watchers explore the orchards and keep you updated on the progress of our blossom. Although the cold & snow can put all of the blossom behind with hope a few weeks of sunshine really bring the blossom out, with many of the trees bursting into life. Sadly with windy & rainy weather a lot of the blossom will finish and fall off the trees with its job for the year done.
