Hiya, My grapevine hase gon ballistic this year, Can't see the grapes for fast growing rods. Will it be OK to lop the non productive ones back without harming the main plant.

i have to do this but they do bleed sap for a while. i also snap off large leaves to help the ripening process too.

Yes it is OK to snip away otherwise yu will not get in the greenhouse! Snipping back to where a sizeable bunch developes will help the grapes to plump up. Grapes don't mind being got at. Take all right back to main stem at end of season. Think about all those bare stumps in France and any vineyards you see here. They can take it. Think of hardy fuschia. You can take them back to the ground and up they pop next year as good as ever.
