What cause sakura to blossom?
Change in temperature. Ironically, the shock provokes the plant to give out its best bloosoms.
Citrus growers too understand this science of winterisation. Without the sudden drop and rise in temperature, there will be no lemons and oranges which need warm summers and mild winters.
Winterisation is to be feared and appreciated.
Why do we fear change? Should we?
Farmers know that plants need preconditioning and acclimatisation to the change or extreme shock will kill it.
In this season of exteme winds of AI, blockchain and machine learning, are you helping your employees acclimatise to the new environment.
Farmers sometimes water the soil of citrus plants during winter to help them tide over.
Your efforts will be rewarded. With beautiful blooms in Spring.
