    I'm in the mountains of VA (Zone 6b), is now a good time to thin or pinch the water sprouts that have started growing since my dormant pruning in early March? If so, I'm training to an open center (vase shape) so how should I prune - just the interior facing water sprouts? Prune all off or only a portion of them? What about the sprouts growing towards the outside?

    I pull them all off mine. At least the ones I can reach.
