New Year … New Pruning!

aprile 2014 (8)

With April 2014 (8) approaching spring, you know, in agriculture you have to start some preparations: ours? Pruning the vine naturally, strictly made with the simple guyot method, as the French tradition wants.

What is it about? It is, working on each plant individually, to scour the vine so that there is a spur with a few gems and a single branch for the fruit tied to the dock, removing everything else, as the image shows. This will maximize the growth of shoots that will take place around the end of April.

From us … even the fruit trees of the house undergo a good pruning, not perhaps a guyot, but in this way you can eliminate the superfluous and give way to future fruits.
