Thanks so much for the reply VMP.
I like the idea of root development vs trunk development early on.
Ok, just to confirm. From the 2 shoot selection on young vines, there is no pruning, ;lateral removal, leaf removal you just let them grow wild until winter?
If i came across a sucker from an existing vine that was not managed properly that i wished to train up as a new trunk, is it the same process as above or do you remove laterals and leaf to speed up the growing process to the wire?
Lots of different educational material here in australia that sometimes doesn’t align with the S&S environment.
Cheers guys! Thanks
