  1. There is only an apple tree at 1454 Ardenwood Ave. The plum tree died a few years ago. It is not in bloom yet, but it is beginning to get green buds.

  2. I believe that this post is incorrect. There is no deadline for Birkas Hilanos. It can be said anytime one sees a budding fruit tree. While it should preferably be said the first time it is seen, if it wasn’t said then, the mishnah brurah holds that one can still make the bracha [at least] until the fruit is completely grown.

    Please correct me if I am mistaken.

  3. Saw the following article on revach.net

    The Shulchan Aruch says that one who sees the budding fruit trees during the month of Nisan should make a bracha. The Mishnah Brurah says that the bracha may be said anytime one sees the budding fruit trees for the first time that year even if it is not the month of Nisan.

    However the Minchas Yitzchok (10:16) says that this is only true in a climate that the trees bud at a different time of the year, such as in Australia that the trees bud in Tishrei not in Nisan. In such a case the bracha may be said at that time even though it is not Nisan. However in climates similar to Eretz Yisrael that the trees bud at the time of Nisan many Poskim hold that the bracha may only be said in Nisan, even if you find a tree budding after Nisan. Therefore if you didn’t make the bracha in Nisan you may say it but without Shem Hashem.

  4. Birchas HaIlanos can be said (even L’Chatchila according to many opinions) even into Iyar, as long as the fruit isn’t finished, and the tree is still blooming.
