We've had manuka in flower up here since early may. The daffodils are up. I've even seen the odd pohutakawa with a flower or 2.
My concern though, is that the manuka hasn't stopped its flower. It hasn't produced much, but they got a fair bit of pollen out.
Do the plants need a down time? Do they need to "reset"? The way I see it, they had a couple of months of no flower after harvest, then started again. There are still buds on the trees. Surely this is bad omen for the spring flow?
