Trimming grapes

Postby JG » Mon Jun 13, 2011 10:50 am

I trimmed my grapes this weekend, snipping off the new, long vines with no fruit on them. Was that a bad thing to do? Was it too early?

Thanks, Jon

It's not a bad thing to do. It can be better if you trim them when they are dormant like in February. Some times I trim mine once a week in the summer to keep them under control.
