APRIL ON THE FARM

06/04/2022

With some warmer spring weather just around the corner, our early-ripening blueberry varieties are in full bloom and our dedicated swarms of helpful Blue Aurora bees are hard at work pollinating all those precious flowers.

However, we did have a few nervous nights last week when overnight temperatures plummeted, meaning that frost prevention measures were needed to protect the bushes. We use a sprinkler system (shown in the image below) to wet the plants throughout the night and into the early hours of the morning. As the air temperature drops below freezing point, the water begins to freeze and crystallise. This process releases heat and maintains a temperature of 0 degrees, which is key to preventing damage!
