Mass Aggie Seminar: 'Pruning Grapes'

February 24, 2018
10:00 am-12:00 pm

Grapes are one of the most universally enjoyed fruits available. Many of the new varieties have excellent taste, are winter hardy, and can make excellent wine. Grapes are fun to grow but present some challenges. One of the biggest challenges is knowing how to correctly prune them.  Participants will have the opportunity to conduct actual pruning and gain both experience and confidence in pruning and training grapes in order to produce a bountiful crop. We’ll learn about tool maintenance and sharpening, too.  Bring your own tools or use ours.

This workshop will be partially outdoors, so please dress appropriately for potentially wet, cold, and muddy conditions.
