About the Event

Greg Krieger, a past president of what is now the North Dakota Grape and Wine Association and who has many years of experience of the whys and hows of proper grapevine pruning, will demonstrate proper grapevine pruning at the Edible Forest demonstration orchard.

Where:  at the Northern Plains Botanic Garden, 1211 28h Avenue North, Fargo, ND. We will gather at the grape pergola northeast of the parking lot, or you may wander the garden until we start.

When: Be there by 2:30 pm on Saturday, May 4. The demonstration will last until about 4:30, but we will go longer if attendees want more information. Cold or warm, it’s on. Blizzard, maybe not.

Why: There is no one way to properly prune grapevines, and there are different needs for pruning grapevines at different ages. We have vines in the Edible Forest that range in age from one year old to four years old. The one year olds are ready to start training to a trellis. The four year olds were kind of trained to a trellis, but are pretty much out of control. The demonstration will be using grapevines that have had no proper pruning, much like many homeowner vines.
