[nafex] Arbor, Grape Training


I have a grape arbor, or is the right term pergola, that I put up last
year, and I need advice on how to train the vines.

Each corner post has a 45 degree angled support.  It would resemble the
letter "Y".  I want to train a vine/side shoot up each angle and the main
post.  How do you best do this?

Should I have three vines coming up from the ground, one following each
angle and one on the main, or train side shoots off a single main vine
coming up from the ground?

I was advised that having a second vine would be good insurance in case
one dies.

I only planted one plant at each corner, but this season I am faced with
some new bottom growth, and some longer growth from last year.

So I need to decide which to trim off, and which to train.

Thanks for any advice.
