Grape Vines-Grapes grow vigorously and require extensive pruning each year to keep them productive. Most training systems for grapes involve developing a main stem or trunk with several lateral stems or arms. Grapes fruit on lateral shoots from the current season's woody growth. Prune all grapes close to the lateral arms each year during the dormant season to produce the best fruit.

What to Prune When in Your Garden for the Healthiest Plants

Take the mystery out of when to prune your plants. Many trees, shrubs, and perennials can produce more blooms and stronger growth if you trim them at certain points during the year, so timing is everything for creating a healthier, more lush garden with your shears.

In the Vineyards: Bud Break

It’s spring, you know what that means… new life! And that is exactly what is happening in the vineyards of Missouri wine country with “bud break”. Bud break is the start of the annual growing cycle for grape vines. It is quite an exciting time because it’s really the first sign of life in the vineyards. So, what exactly is bud break?

Soulard Farmers Market - Grapes

The Soulard Farmers Market, located in downtown St. Louis, Missouri, is one of the largest and oldest farmers market's west of the Mississippi. The market had humble beginnings in 1779 as a flat meadow that farmers could come to, to sell their locally raised fruit, vegetables, dairy, and livestock. In 1795, Antoine Soulard was given a 122 acre plot that included the market grounds by his father-in-law, Gabriel Cerre. But, when the United States made the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, Antoine's…

Crush: The Next Step

If harvest is the first step a grape takes on its life’s journey to your glass, crush is most definitely the second— a big, messy, interesting step that makes a large impact on the character of the wine it will become.

They are mixed in with the grapes as a pressing agent to form channels for the juice to work its way out.
