Pruning  The ground in my yard is still frozen, but daytime temperatures are starting to climb above 0°C. I pruned my Concord grapevine, which tends to bleed sap profusely if the temperature is too warm when pruned.  To view a YouTube video of Pruning Grape Vines, click here.

Pruning  I grow the Heritage variety of everbearing raspberries which bear a crop in June on old wood and also in the late summer into fall on new wood. I choose to cut the canes to the ground early each spring to allow all the plant energy go toward the later season crop. To View a YouTube video of Pruning Everbearing Raspberries, click here.
