Pruning Ornamental Grape Vines


Tvanberg added on August 2, 2017 | Answered

We have several ornamental grape vines, which provide beautiful cooling and shade in summer. Unfortunately, we have not pruned very much, and they are now somewhat out of control, and looking shabby. Is there a service that will come and advise and prune our vines? We are in Launching Place (between Warburton and Lilydale).

Grapes are ideally pruned every winter, because that way you will avoid removing leaves that are still actively providing energy for the plant. You can remove some of the overgrowth now, but keep this to a minimum and remove the rest of the overgrowth after the vine has lost all its leaves. Here's more about how to prune grapevines:
