help pruning grape vines

Asked February 5, 2014, 2:47 PM EST

I live in Jefferson and am a real rookie at pruning my grapes. I understand that part of the Master Gardener program includes 60 hours of community service. Is there a Master Gardener or Master Gardner in training who could help me with the pruning while earning the needed hours to meet Master Gardener credentials. Thank you for any help you may be able to offer.

Hi:

Master gardeners cannot make house calls for liability reasons. However, OSU Extension Publications has a terrific publication on growing table grapes in the home garden which has an extensive and very pictorial pruning section. Have a look at this publication and see if it provides clarity on the pruning. If you still have questions, please feel free to contact me directly and I can assist you.
