There will be several opportunities to learn about effective dormant cane and spur pruning throughout the region over the next month. I plan to be at all of these events to teach and address pruning questions. Please come on out to improve your pruning knowledge and skills.


1 – UGA Extension Viticulture team members will give two presentations on pruning strategies next week on Tuesday, February 5th at the Georgia Wine Producers meeting (at Chateau Elan in Braselton, GA):
