Grape Vine

Grape vines are deciduous woody vines bearing lobed leaves that are, in some varieties, edible. Grapes grow in "black" and "white" varieties, and are used extensively in wine production. Many varieties are also grown for the table, and for many culinary uses, including dried, as raisins, for juice, for vinegar, for making jelly and for grape-seed extract and oil.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Method of planting is the same whether planting in a greenhouse, or outdoors. Dig a large planting hole – a minimum of 2' x 2' x 2' (60 x 60 x 60 cm). Fork over the base and sides of the hole to loosen the soil, then part-fill the hole with a mixture of the soil that was removed from the hole and organic matter such as well-rotted manure, leaf mould or similar, but not using more than 50%, or the plant will be ‘lazy’ in rooting into the surrounding soil. Plant the vine so that the graft is about 6-10 cms. above the original ground level. Water well after planting

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Late Summer TO Mid Autumn

Semi hard wood cuttings are taken from the current years growth from late summer to mid autumn. The bottom of the cuttings is hard and soft on the top. With a sharp knife take a cutting of about 14cms, remove lowest leaves, dip end into rooting hormone, and place round the edge of a pot filled with a suitable compost, water well. They must remain moist until rooted. Place under glass but in semi shade.
