    Default Differences in blooming

    Last week end, I visited a friend's farm. I noticed a strange thing.
    There are three almond trees, side by side, of the same age. The one is as dead, the second has just started to bloom, and the third is white as a bride. I know that there are differences in blooming cause of the microclimate every place has, but how about that? Do the trees have a different blooming clock inside?

    Possibly differences in tree health. Stressed and diseased trees often bud break later in the spring and drop leaves earlier in fall (personal observations)

    Difference in variety/strain of tree can effect bloom timing as well.
    Some varieties bloom earlier/later than others.
