I have a reliance grapevine that i planted last year. it is just looking like it is about to grow from a bud. It only grew about 1 foot last year and different sources say to either cut it all the way down to prompt it to grow quicker, or to just let it keep growing.
should i cut it down? It is in part shade and may have been out competed for nutrients from the grass around it (that may be why it didn't grow as much).
