  • Grape vine Pruning

    Hello again, second post and (grape) vine pruning time. I bought all my vines last year and pruned them all to 2 buds and their stems reached about half a pencil thickness last year. I believe I have to pruned these to 2 buds again, is this correct?

    My main question relates to a Muscat Blue eating grape that I bought. When I bought this plant it was just over pencil thickness. I bought it in late spring, so decided not to prune. I've trained to a single 6 foot arm and it has reached pencil thickness or more along it's whole length. I suspect it was a year older then it's garden centre label suggested.

    Do I need to bother cutting this arm back as it has reached pencil thickness? Also, if the advice is to carry on, what would be my next step as the arm continues to shoot? The buds seem to be between 3.5 to 5 inches apart. Do you have any advice please?

    Thank you,

    I put some pictures of vine pruning on the forum a while ago but can't remember the thread. Perhaps a MOD could help.
