Thanks, I will try to do better next spring
DR>this year leave the vines until spring, then select vines that are pencil th
DR>3-4 feet in both directions "arms" (or 2 sets, one on the upper fence, one
DR>down) and leave a vine coming off that every foot (the fingers). cut that l
DR>to about 3-5 buds.
DR>I use the curtain system. my thick heavy standard goes up to 8', the 2 arms
DR>about 3 feet and the vines come off that, hanging down. very productive.
DR>>My concard grape arbor is produceing much leaf growth,
DR>>but very very few grapes
DR>>I cut back rather heavily last year on previous advice
DR>>that would prompt more fruiting but 8-(
DR>>The original planting was about 10 yearsago.
DR>>How can we manage to produce the fruit we used to please?
DR>>Stay young, OldAck
