|I WATCHED YOUR PROGRAM ON GRAPES,(11/19/05). YOU SHOWED HOW TO TRIM GRAPE VINES AND WHEN TO DO IT. I MISSED PART OF THE PROGRAM ON THE TRIMING PROCESS. CAN YOU HELP WITH THAT. I HAVE A LARGE GROWTH OF CONCORDS THAT IS GETTING OUT OF HAND. THEY SEEM TO BE PRODUCING LESS EVERY YEAR. I NEED TO CUT THEM BACK, BUT HOW FAR. THE PLANT IS 7 YEARS OLD WITH THE MAIN TRUNK ABOUT 2 INCHES IN DIAMITER.
I WOULD APPREICATE ANY HELP.
