Cuttings starting too
Is the season for bud swelling or burst changing?
In SE Oz, IMBY, the backyard potted and planted shiraz[syrah] vines are buds are swelling, a week or so after the Pinot Noir potted vines.Here are some of the Pinot buds after a week on.
The 2010 cuttings of Pinot buds are starting to swell, well 3 out of 7 are.
Last years Shiraz cuttings may not at all! The snails may have got to them while dormant- better find a better place to lave the 2011 cutting!
Speaking of, the 2011 Pinot and Shiraz cuttings buds are swelling too.
