Caring for Young Grape Vines
My name is David Handley, I'm with the Universityof Maine Cooperative Extension, and we're here to talk about how to prune and traina young grapevine. This is a vine that was planted last spring. We got it from a dormantplant, or rooted cutting, and you can see the original part of the planting right here.This is what we got from the nursery, with a good root system under it. We planted it,and we had a bud break and some vine growth. This is last year's growth right here. Thiswas a green shoot. Typically, you may get more than one shoot developing. You may haveseveral buds on here. We want to prune this back to one strong vine, your strongest one.We're going to arrange for that to be tied
up to a trellis, because this particular vineis what's going to become our permanent trunk, or the permanent part of the plant that'sgoing to be with us for the life of the planting. We want to make sure it's the strongest ofthe vines that we can choose from. Any other one that developed that's very weak, we canjust cut that out, select our best one. The time of year to make these cuts are whenthe canes are dormant, and this is going to be really any time after the new year, untilthey bud out in late March, early April. We hope in the first year that we get enoughgood growth that we can tie it to the lower trellis wire.Typically here in Maine, we're going to be
pruning to either a four arm kniffin trainingsystem, or an umbrella kniffin training system. Those trellises consist of two wires, oneset at about two and a half feet, and a second wire set at about five feet.We hope in the first year that we're going to get enough good growth to reach at leastthe bottom wire, but in order to make sure it's growing straight, you can see we supportedthis with a small bamboo pole. Any kind of planting stake will work, and we just tiethat vine up as it grows, rather than let it grow along the ground where it can getrot problems, and not develop a nice straight growth like we want. We tie it up, just likeyou'd tie up a beef steak tomato, get the
growth that you want.As I said, we've got pretty good buds here, reaching up to the first wire. You can seethat I actually make it to the top wire, but you can see the growth up here is very scrawnyand spindly, and isn't really going to lead to a good, strong trunk. I'd rather actuallystart new growth for reaching to this top wire for next year.What that means is that I'm actually going to cut this off here, rather low, to try toget this bud here to break and give me a much stronger shoot to develop my trunk to thetop wire next year. I can just take that there, and then, instead of using the bamboo polethis year, I can just tie it to the wire.
This bud will hopefully break, and give mea good, strong shoot, that I'm going to reach the second wire next year. Of course, thesebuds lower down will also break, and if this one happens to be weak, I may select one ofthese. But, if this bud does turn out to be a strong shoot, I'll be cutting these offnext winter and getting my single trunk back up to the top wire.Next year, when this does reach the top wire, eventually what we'll be doing is taking oneyear old cane, and either draping it over this top wire and connecting it to the bottomwire in an umbrella kniffin, or we'll be taking one cane at the top wire on each side, andone cane at the bottom wire on each side,
to create four arms of one year old growth,for a four\uc0\u8209 arm kniffin system. Both systems work pretty well for concretetype grapes here in a cold climate like Maine.

(Music Plays) G'Day Views and welcome to Colour In Your Life in New Zealand Now the team and I have come over to New Zealand, we're going to be spending a couple of weeks here and we're circumnavigating the South Island of New Zealand to get some of the great artists of New Zealand onto the show. We're going to have a fantastic time and as you can see look at the country, it's just amazing. So we're going to make our way all around the bottom of the South Island and see some of these incredible people
so come along for the ride. It's going to be fantastic. Well g'day viewers and welcome back to Colour In Your Life. We are in a beautiful little town called Glenorchy, in the South Island of New Zealand, up the road from Queenstown with a gentleman named Mr. John Crump. John, welcome to the show. Thank you. Great to be here. John, without a doubt, is probably one of the foremost landscape artists that this country has. His work is so amazingly iconic when it comes to capturing the beauty, the absolute magnificent beauty, of New Zealand, and as we go through the show you're obviously going to see. We're going to be doing some plein air painting with you todayé
Yep. Now, in our discussions over the phone you were telling me at one stage, obviously you started out your career, forty years now that you've been doing this as a professional artist, but at one stage you were actually working in a studio. Yes. One of your directors said something to you about â€˜you know what, you need to get outside'. That's right. Tell me a bit about that. Well I was exhibiting with a gallery in Wellington, and the owner Gordon said to me one time â€˜your
paintings are starting to look formulaic, you knowé Yeah. You're doing the same thing too often. So he arranged for an Australian artist to take me out painting. Okay. A fella who was committed to plein air work, Les Campbell, and he was a good painter, we went away on a trip together. For the first part of that trip it was a nightmare. Yeahé I just couldn't catch up and I was too slow. He would be whistling away and happy as, finishing off his work,
and I was still getting started. Laughs Cause I was so used to taking my time. But you're used toâ€¦ sorryâ€¦ But I remember that month I sped up, and I discovered that my work was getting better and better outdoors. Okay. I'd almost been scared of outdoors. I'd tried it once. The easel blew away and the painting with it, and it wasn't working. Yeah.
