Peak Spring Show for Conifers - May or June?

9 years ago

I have been asked to host our local garden club this spring (either mid-May or mid-June) to show off my garden. Problem is, I can't remember when the new growth on the conifers is peaking, so I don't know whether to choose May or June. I expect spring growth might vary depending on climate, but please weigh in with what happens in your garden anyway wherever you are located.

I live in a cold zone of the Mid-Peninsula San Francisco Bay Area - last night it was 22F. Our spring weather has been unusually cold the last few years which I know has been delaying the roses coming in to bloom, but I don't know whether cold or light levels trigger the new growth spurt on conifers.

Thank you!
