::: ZOOM : BUDBURST :::

Around the beginning of April, the protective scales which are recovering the shoots diverge to reveal the "stuffing" (= fluffy duvet which is protecting the shoots in winter).
This is what we call the bud burst period.
The vine is waking up, shoots starts to develop and open themselves.This is the beginning of the vegetative period.

If you're walking through the vines, you will observe the alignment of small green dots on the freshly trimmed vines.
