Pruning: The process

toolsPruning requires removing all dead or even some living parts. The process  must be done regularly and drastically; some experts recommend to cut off up to 90% of the plant. Paradoxically; to get more, there must be less.

The purpose is to control and give direction to the plant growth. Vines have the tendency to vigorously propagate and extend into a tangle mass of branches. Grapes vines produce their best fruit on one year-old canes. The procedure is severe, but more important, it is the best thing one can do for the plant and the end result is sure to be worth it.

  2. Si, duele, con todo mi corazón deseo que el Señor sea formado en nosotros y cuando sea tiempo de dar fruto entonces este presente dolor, solo será un recuerdo. te quiero.

  3. ¡Vaya,Andrés! Me pregunto: ¿Dejo podarme el 90%? ¡Ay! pero es tan necesario para que llevemos fruto.
    Gracias por este post.
