This is the best time of year for us to have a break from the farm for a few weeks. At this stage we are generally just waiting for the soil to warm up, and the buds to develop. There are always numerous jobs to do on the farm, but if we don't go now, it will be another year before we get a chance. The planting of new stock has been completed, and this year it looks like we have had virtually 100% success, thanks to Treloar Roses excellent quality. Mulching, fertilising and weeding is all up to date, so, time for a holiday before we swap pruning snips for picking snips!
