Valiant grape pruning question.
This question was spurred (pun intended) from the thread below.
First I have to say thanks to all in that thread because for some reason I could never wrap my head around grape pruning. Now I have a great idea of where to start. Many of you said something along the lines of " The oldest bark is dark and rough with peeling bark and last years wood (what you want) is lighter and smooth"
This is the third season for my valiant. I didnt prune it at all last year because there were only three two foot long canes before its first winter. During the season they pushed out three canes all 6.4 feet long.
Now I am sort of lost what to do. I know there are single and double tier systems for grapes. The lower portions of one or two of the canes have small lateral branches about a foot long as well.
I am just not sure of what cane(s) to keep and how short to prune. The pic below is late last season.. If you need recent ones let me know and ill grab them.
