Pruning of the new plants

Placed on 14 Feb 2023

Pruning of the 2021 plantings is finished! We have already started pruning the 2022 plantings. These plants had already grown quite a bit so they need to be pruned back. We have to decide which of the shoots will become the trunk and cut off the remaining shoots. Then we keep 3 good buds and completely 'clean' the rest of the trunk, so all buds and small shoots are brushed off or cut. Again, this will take several weeks.
