Help with muscadine not producing cordons
Planted a mucsadine vine (granny val) in the fall. Not sure how old it is, but itÃ¢ÂÂs about the diameter of a pencil.
The vine had been container grown and had a lot of growth on it. I pruned all the side growth and left one trunk about 4ft long. It was a little over 5ft but I cut it down to 4.
ItÃ¢ÂÂs in a grow tube and the top of vine is attached to the wire of my single wire trellis with a piece of string. I can look down the tube and see growth at the bottom but the top will not produce any cordons.
Is the growth at the bottom taking away all the nutrients from the top? Am I being impatient?
Should I have cut the main trunk all the way down to the ground? I wouldnÃ¢ÂÂt think that would be necessary as that would be like starting from scratch?
How do I get it to produce the two cordons so I can run it down the trellis?
Thanks for any help
