grape vine pruning
Double-duty design. A vine-laden arbor provides shade for an outdoor dining room and heaps of fresh table grapes. These vigorous vines aren't too fussy about soil, can withstand periods of drought once established and, other than annual pruning and a little tying up, require little maintenance. Consider planting several varieties of grape on a large arbor for a cornucopia of fresh fruit.

A well-pruned vine is given maximum exposure to sunlight, air circulation and maintenance.These factors create an atmosphere less likely to harbor diseases or pests. Knowing how to prune a grape vine correctly will increase your productivity and quality of the crop.
