Pruning is a necessary operation to keep the plant in order, give it a correct shape and improve the production of flowers or fruit.
Depending on the type of plant, specific measures will be necessary to give the plant a correct shape.
For example, the vine needs two annual prunings, one in winter to eliminate the fruiting element it has produced and one in spring to shorten the fruiting element and thus improve production.
The mastic after pruning
Pruning creates wounds to the plant that could be attacked by parasites and infections.
After pruning we must therefore apply "mastic", that is a substance that disinfects, protects and presses a fast healing.
