While is it not essential to prune a grapevine for it to thrive…pruning IS the one cultural activity that can vastly improve production and fruit quality year after year. Learn not only when and how to prune your grapevines, but why.

Several training and trellising schemes and configurations that ease and facilitate production will be presented. Proper tool selection and maintenance will be covered, and participants will have an opportunity to practice some “hands-on” pruning skills. Bring your own hand-pruners if you have them. All will be revealed.

This workshop is part of the Heritage Farm Home Vineyard Workshops taught by Gill Giese, PhD, New Mexico State University Extension viticulture specialist. All workshops are included with regular admission to the Botanic Garden. Workshops occur on the second Saturday of each month.

Pre-registration is required. Contact Pamela Dupzyk at 505-848-7162.
