- Plant the rows of vines in a direction that will give both sides the same amount of sunshine.

- Irrigate the planting area a day before planting.

- Prepare the sprigs the day before in a shaded and cool place.

- Start planting as early in the morning as possible.

- Mark the location of the pits on the plastic sheeting and, again, make sure to plant the vines in a straight row!

- Make sure the water system is working when you plant the sprigs! (Plant them into mud…).

- Irrigate the area after planting. It’s important to consult with a qualified instructor.
