Vitis californica x vinifera âRogerâs Red' pruning/care
Can someone tell me if/how to prune this vine? While we'd love to continue to get it's tasty little grapes (for us and the birds), I planted it for it's beauty as a focal point on a wall, not as a vinyard-production-type plant. I planted it 1 year ago near a stucko wall and strung wire for it to climb. It climbed and spread quite nicely, and was beautiful in its fall color. When I search how to prune grapes, I see vinyard-type training, like high cordon system where the vine is trained to one or two trunks. How should I prune it to keep it healthy, spreading, and beautiful(and hopefully still producing) ?
