Many hobby gardeners have wine in the garden. It is a popular climbing plant and also provides a green roof over your head. But this is exactly where the problem lies. If you want to have a rich and tasty grape harvest, you should start thinning the leaves in September.
Thin out the vines
To thin out, you should remove the first two to three leaves after the stem attachment. You can do this with secateurs. You can also simply break out the leaves. As a result, the grapes get more sun. As a result, they grow faster, become larger and more aromatic. In addition, they are not as susceptible to diseases.
Gray mold on grapes
Grapes are particularly troubled by the gray mold. He likes to settle on moist grapes that are in the shade. Anyone who exposes the vines thoroughly ensures that they dry quickly after rain and that the gray mold has no chance. In addition, the removal of the old leaves is better for photosynthesis, so that the younger leaves can better manage the growth.
