From planting to trimming

From planting to trimming

Our progress at Pookchurch moved from preparing the land at the start of the year to planting in April and May. The vines have done well, helped by a wet June and a warm end to the summer. In July we selected the strongest shoots to encourage stronger growth and root development, and reduce crowding in the tubes. Removing 120,000 tubes ( and then replacing them) is a lot of work, but was done in two weeks by the Vine Works’ team.
