TOPIC: Plant emergence in northern Indiana

Plant emergence in northern Indiana 4 years 7 months ago #22347

I'm in northern indiana about ten miles south of Mi. When should I expect to see emergence of the stratified seed I planted last fall...this is the first warm week we've had and most trees have yet to bud.

Your a bit south of where in live in upstate NY but based on my experience, mine will start emerging the 2nd week in May. So maybe yours will start around May 1st.

Will they come up all at once? Over a few days? Weeks? What's been your experience?

They will come up staggerd typically. So it is not uncommon to see the last one sprout a week to 2 weeks after you see the first few come up.
Good luck,
Latt

Some will come up a week or even 2 or 3 ahead of others... just a few early birds at first and then later on more and more will start emerging.

I am down in southern middle TN and started planting in the fall of 2010 and have found 3 leafers up on 3/20 (first year), 3/19 (second year) and this year about that same time.

But the ones I find real early like that I have to look hard for and only a very small fraction come up early like that, the rest, a week or 2 or more later.

I checked one of my wild-sim beds today (a large double row bed) and found several thousand 3 leafers up.

Red-buds are just starting to break into bloom here... so I would bet about the time red-buds kick in there you will start finding some up, and may find a few before that.

Good Luck with your planting !

The seeds sprout way before you see them. I'm a similar latitude to Sengfever and I've found many seeds have sprouted :). No green yet though. There is still snow in many spots here, but it seems sprouting begins the second the seeds thaw out.

Welcome to this forum!

Can't say as I have ever had lambs... However did raise goats many years ago. Kids were a real event when they happened!

Good luck with your plantings!
