Pruning Grape Vines

If you want your grape vine to produce an abundance of
really good fruit, then you have to properly prune your
grape vines in late winter.

1. Grape vines should be tied to a wire trellis during the
growing season so they get plenty of sunlight and air circulation.

2. Grape wood more than 2 years old will not produce fruit
so when pruning, all of the old wood should be removed.

3. Vine growth from the previous growing season should be
left, but only enough to cover the wires on your grape trellis.

4. If your grape trellis has two wires, then two nice vines
should be left on each side of the plant so all of the wires
have grape vines attached to them.

5. You should also leave two sets of replenishing vines on
each side of the plant. The replenishing vines should only
have two or three buds each. These replenishing vines are
left to produce new grape vines for the following season.

6. Each winter you remove the old wood, tie the new wood
to the trellis, and leave two more sets of replenishing vines.
