Do I need to hard prune my grape vine now or do need to wait until it’s dropped its leaves.



Wait until it has dropped its leaves and is dormant or the cuts will bleed.

I escape into the greenhouse on Xmas day and do mine. the victorians used to do it at xmas too, though i suspect it was a way of keeping the 'hired hands/staff' in their place. Certainly as mg says do it when dormant but before March.

ive pruned mine ~ had it 2 or 3 years and still no fruit ~ is there any hope?

Don't prune it so early Stickitoffee and if it is a new vine they take several years to fruit.

Some kinds don't fruit with really heavy pruning, either. I would try leaving a few twigs about 40 cm long this year, and see what happens.
