How I predict (Answer), April 28, 2017 , posted by Nobby , nobbycosmic@yahoo.co.jp

I received two inquires on my blooming predictions posted here on March 23 how I could predict them one month ahead. Any plants grow by the input of energy which is in this case mainly the daily temperatures. The cherry trees feel the energy when the temperatures are above freezing. They start to feel it starting some time in February. I calculate the accumulated energy input everyday. To predict I use the 14-day forecast. Beyond that, I use the average daily temperatures in the past 10 years. I know the approximate figures when they start blooming and they reach the full bloom. The errors occur when the actual temperatures differ from the forecast. Every year the predictions were quite close to actual blooming and the full bloom.

Still Good?, April 28, 2017 , posted by Vince , vincekhho@yahoo.com

Anybody by the trees after yesterday's rain? Wondering if yesterdays storm ruined the view.

Visited today and just a few buds open. Seems to me like Monday - Wednesday will be peak days.

Rain, April 21, 2017 , posted by Wen , wendy.kw.fung@gmail.com

Now!, April 20, 2017 , posted by Admin

transportation, April 20, 2017 , posted by Gwen Stanton , stanton_gwen@yahoo.ca

I have limited mobility and use a walker to get around.
Is there any transportation available that would
accommodate me to get into the park, even a TTC bus
service as I can arrange for help to get on and off
the bus, if there is anything like this.
Thank you for your time and attention.

When to come?!, April 19, 2017 , posted by Natalia , natalia_tomlinson@hotmail.com

Ive never gotten to see these bloom and this year it is on my bucket list. I am not familiar with how to plan or time this and was wondering what dates would be the rough estimate for the beautiful blooms?

let me know when to visit the park

Sakura cheery blossoms, April 17, 2017 , posted by henry

I was at High Park on Good Friday and I saw some buds have developed to stage 4. If this trend continues, I predict that some of the Sakura cherry trees will be blooming on this weekend of April 22 or the weekend after that for sure...stay tuned for more update.

All flowers!, April 17, 2017 , posted by Catherine , caron.catherine@hotmail.com

It's happening: the cherry blossom in my garden is in full bloom! High Park trees should be in bloom these coming days!

It must be soon, April 16, 2017

This weekend and the past weekend were so warm, all the trees are flowering and new buds are growing, the sakura must start blooming soon in High Park. It can't be more than a week away?

Cherry blossom blooming, April 11, 2017 , posted by henry

My best guess the cherry trees will start blooming on the weekend of April 28-30 if the weather and temperature keep holding at around 12-18 from now to that day. Fingers crossed.

Too much rain, April 10, 2017

There has been too much rain lately; I have a bad feeling about this. Is there such thing as too much rain for a tree? Other than this, the buds are looking so much more swollen than last time I went to visit (which was April 2)!

Not just first day, April 5, 2017

To answer the question from the previous poster: it's not just a one day affair, usually the trees are in full bloom for two to four days. But the 29th may not be the best weekend. It's hard to tell now. Check back in a week.

Dumb question, April 5, 2017 , posted by Lance , lancebratsburg@gmail.com

Dumb question here. I have planned a trip for my wife and I to go April 29th weekend. If we miss the full bloom are we out of luck or is that just the first day worth enjoying it?

I think earlier, April 4, 2017 , posted by Zach

based on what i've heard this past weekend from people @ the park the cherry blossoms at high park this year will be in full bloom much sooner than the may 1 prediction posted on your website

Buds, April 2, 2017 , posted by Andy

I've seen lilac bushes start to get their buds... usually cherry blossoms about 2 weeks behind....

RE: no blooming at all?, March 23, 2017 , posted by Nobby , nobbycosmic@yahoo.co.jp

For the cherry flowers to bloom, a smooth rise of the daily temperatures is important. Last year, the middle of March was unusually warm with double digit maximum temperatures reaching 20C on one day. The buds must have started to work at a full speed. Then came the single digit freezing temperatures that continued to the middle of April. The buds must have been stunned and confused. I saw only a few flowers around May 9 shrouded in green leaves. This year, a similar pattern happened but fortunately in February to the beginning of March. The buds were not yet developed enough to be affected by that, I think. This year, so far, my prediction curve is rising rather nicely to blooming around the weekend of April 22/23 with full bloom around the weekend of May 1/2. Note: I am not an expert on the blooming nor the cherry blossoms. I am calculating the figures with very basic pieces of information. I do not take any responsibilities if the prediction was off.

Buds yet?, March 19, 2017 , posted by Kat , katkas553@gmail.com

Has anyone seen if the tress are budding?? Hopefully the warmer temps forecasted this week will help...

RE: no blooming at all?, March 16, 2017

they didn't bloom last year because of rain and other bad conditions

No blooming at all?, March 8, 2017 , posted by Mr. Ackerly

I read that last year there were no blooming at all? How is that possible? Other websites say the same thing too? What happened? Anyone?

Not late April , March 8, 2017

The website says late April to early May but I would wager it'll be closer to early April this year. Some trees are budding in my yard already. Not sakura trees but it's still early for any tree to be budding.

Warm winter, March 8, 2017

Will the trees be blooming early this year because of the mild winter?

re: August, August 9, 2016 , posted by Admin

That is correct. Definitely no blooming this time of the year. This is a new page for the 2017 blooming season which will begin sometime in March/April.

August bloom?, August 9, 2016

No they aren't! I was confused by this page too but it's up all year so just because it's August it doesn't mean trees are all of a sudden in bloom haha

August, August 9, 2016 , posted by Jeb

Are there cherry trees in bloom in August?

re: last year, May 2, 2016 , posted by Jay J.

I think you're talking about another year. Maybe you thought you were on a different page - this is for 2017 even though your post shows up with the wrong date. I heard last year most flowers turned into leaves. I don't know how that happens, must be some explanation for it how a flower bud can turn into a leaf? Is that how all leaves grow on every tree? They start off as buds and some become flowers some don't? How does this work?

What happened last year?, May 2, 2016

I heard last year there was no blooming? Is that true?
