Growing & Harvesting Position

In the Growing/Harvesting position, the berries are on the sun-protected side of the canopy — the perfect position for harvesting.

Wintering Position

In the Winter/Spring position, the canes are protected from the wind and winter cold and are positioned to set shoots on the upper side of the canopy.

Horizontal Option Position

In the Bud Break (Horizontal) position, the canes are slightly off the ground to encourage air circulation, as well as shoot and flower development on the upper side of the canopy.
