They are indeed @debs69 Bit of a nuisance though really, as you can hardly move now in the greenhouse & the tomato & cucumber plants are suffering from being totally swamped by the grapevine. It may have to go next year! 😕

I have vine envy @jeatacake ❤ They say you can grow the roots in the greenhouse and let the plant sprawl out of the window....

@debs69 thank you, but it's become a real pain in the neck, literally, as I have to stoop down in there all the time. The grapes from it are nice but I am fed up with it hogging the greenhouse!

@AnnikasGarden Appearances can be deceptive! Yes, the roots grow in the ground, planted in the corner of the greenhouse, but the grapes (here up north anyway) need the warmth of the greenhouse to ripen properly. If I do get rid of it, I may try growing it outside next year 😕

@debs69 It is as shame, but a comprise may be very severe pruning. We will see! 😕
