Cheers to snow for helping make this year’s drops just tops
THERE were some excellent snowfalls around the Orange district in July. Snow is great – it looks pretty, it fills dams and snow puts moisture deep into the subsoil. With over 150mm of precipitation, half of which was snow, the soil moisture profile is close to saturation. This is very good for vine growth as we head into spring. The only downside is that these classic Orange winter conditions mean that pruning is challenging.
