My experience with gardening so far has been if you use common sense, things turn out pretty good.
I think I just took on something that will get the best of me.
I bought my first grapevine.
This vine came in a one galon pot. It has a stem (trunk??) and two lovely looking vines coming out on each side. They are about 3feet long on each side. There is a small new shoot coming from the middle. The grapevine is called "Flame Seedless Grape".
So I followed the directions and it is now planted against a 5 foot fence with lattice work at the top that I figured the vines could attached themselves to. I don't have any wire, so I just put nails into the fence and made sure the little tentacles wrapped around them. The plant
is in a corner. My figuring was one arm to the left fence and the other to the right.
All made me happy and proud that I had accomplished this much. I watered it in and then came in to look up how to prune.
The pruning is very complicated and I need some simple instructions please. Can anyone out there help me with this or lead me to a place that has 'Pruning for Dummies??' This article talks about trunks, canes, arms, buds, dominant shoots..... and warns that if I don't prune correctly, ......no grapes.
Also, did I at least do the planting and supporting correctly??
(Sorry this was so long but I can't believe this can be that complicated.)
