Spring

Blossom time, and what an amazing sight as you look out across the orchard at a sea of white flowers. Pest and disease management programmes begin in earnest. Much of this is done using Integrated Pest Management systems. IPM relies on monitoring the trees for pests and only using sprays when the job becomes too big for natural predators and methods. As the season unfolds the young fruit grows and develops.
