This course will build on prior study and experience with pruning grapevines by discussing pruning concepts beyond the basics and vine balance.
Timing: Four online lessons of approximately 20 minutes. Lessons are mainly audio with supporting documentation. Practical exercises using grapevines (vines need not be in the dormant season) are also be included, to undertake in the students own time.
Experience level required: Intermediate, some experience in pruning vines required.
Next steps: This course is followed by Advanced Pruning 2 which expands into vine capacity and the ideal vine.
