The attention paid to tea plants between autumn and spring

If you have a garden of any size, you know that between autumn and spring, aside from when the ground is frozen, there is always work to be getting on with, such as pruning. In the tea fields, too, this period is put to good use: every tree is examined and given the necessary care. As with a fruit tree, the plant is assessed before the winter pruning is carried out. This cutting back, which is not performed every year, helps the shrub to put on new growth.
