Italian to English translations [PRO] Agriculture / seedig bed phase
Italian term or phrase:barbatella
I need to define the little young plants before being transplanted / seedlings might do?/I don't personally like the term "cutting "very much , because according to me it doesn't precisely means what a "barbatella" is
Explanation: How the barbatella is prepared
The roots of the wild vine to be planted are trimmed and cleaned up to facilitate new growth. It's also necessary to prune the upper part leaving only the most healthy shoots; 2 or 3 gems on each shoot should remain.
The wild vines are kept in soil and water until planting takes place.
