Newbie here. Growing table grapes using VSP trellis. Variety is unknown.

It's a third year grapevine. I got too busy to prune it just before emerging from dormancy. And it put on 1 month of growth.

A. Is there a problem with forgetting to prune during dormancy other than convenience and ease?

I know a lot of energy went into unwanted shoots that I'll be cutting off now. Is that a big no-no?

You would not be the first to prune late, also would would not be the first to try to “recover” a vineyard which was not tended.
All in all it works, more important question,,, Have you kept up the spray schedule?
