Whilst are friends were here we decided to get their assistance in netting our nectarine tree. It is loaded with fruit and already we have had something nibbling at the fruit to see whether it is ripe. We had a good crop of the tropical nectarines last year and we expect that this crop is going to be even bigger.
Netting the tree is not as easy as you might think as the tree is getting quite tall. We use an extension pole and try and ease it over the tree. You then need two people to walk either side and cover the tree. It took a little maypole dance before everyone became co-ordinated but eventually we got the tree covered.
