Winter Chill - February 2012

At last we have had some snow, and proper winter temperatures. Fruit trees need a good period of cold weather to keep the buds dormant and build their strength for later. Overwintering pests are less likely to survive in cold conditions, reducing the need for expensive sprays in the summer. The frozen ground conditions are also ideal for working with heavy machinery such as hedgecutters and prunings sweepers, doing their jobs without leaving a mark on the soil. Pruning is going well, with almost half the farm now completed.
