And let the blossoming begin!

The outcome of the start of the 2012 season is absolutely positive, although the definitive verdict must wait for the blossoming to complete. The weather predictions are good for the next while, and so I am optimistic. Spring 2012 was characterized by very irregular temperatures, some weeks were truly cold and others sweltering, and it rained with medium to low intensity almost every weekend.

For now, we haven’t seen any fungus attacks and I think this is due to the low temperatures in May, which blocked the possible development of the disease.

Happy blossoming everyone!
