I will soon be pruning the grape vines for the winter. Some I will be sticking in the ground to produce new plants. They are easily propagated if stuck in the ground early in the winter. They must also be pruned before the sap starts to rise in late winter early spring. If you prune mature wood at this time of rising sap the vine will weep and lose much of its sap. The vine will therefore weaken and may not flower or set fruit. Therefore it is imperative to prune them in the winter. This also applies to most decideious and fruit trees.
