Summer Harvesting of Tea Plants

Summer Harvest of Tea Plants

Summer in Georgia is harsh for most things, but for camellia sinensis tea plants, which love the sun and heat, it is ideal.  With temperatures soaring in the upper 90’s, the tea plants are growing like weeds and we are getting harvest every 10-12 days.  Even though rainfall has been off and on for the last few months, with drip irrigation, the plants are getting what they need.  We are applying organic fertilizer every 3-4 weeks and they are doing well.
