Bush and vine, deciduous, small fruit plants—such as grapes, blackberries, and raspberries—require special training on trellis systems. In addition, pruning fruits growth and limits height and spread of the plant. This four-page publication explains the early training procedures required for certain small fruits. Includes detailed illustrations and instructions for building the particular trellises required for grapes, blackberries, and raspberries; also includes extensive instructions for pruning mature dormant grapevines.
