Grapes will also require some pruning if you want them to do their best. You can not understand how to grow grapes until you realize the necessity behind pruning. Pruning is something that has to take place to have the best grape vines that there are. If you were to never prune your vines the roots would be overworked trying to spread nourishment to every single cane. By doing that, none of the canes are going to get enough nourishment making for an over all weak plant. When this occurs, the crop that you will have waited so long for will be a pitiful display of what your vine is capable of. But if you do the pruning that is needed, all the vines that are left to grow will be strong, creating an abundance of grapes.

Trim and prune your grape plants whenever possible, but do this gently as not to “shock” the plants that these might wither and die. Use the sharpest tools only to keep the damage minimal. Grape fruits usually emerge from a year old plants, on stems that have been established from the previous year. Year old plants have smoother barks, while older ones (those that are beyond their prime) have course and shaggy barks. Trim and prune away the older plants, but keep some of their roots intact. These may yet still yield cuttings which you can keep for future plantings. Trim some of the runners, especially those that grow beyond the area of their climbing supports.
