Grape vines in the garden
You can also grow grapes in the garden. A high soil moisture content is not well tolerated. Before planting the roots of Vitis vinifera should be soaked well – stand them in a bucket of lukewarm water. Vitris vinifera grows well in humus-rich, well-drained soil. Prepare a large hole, loosen the soil and improve it with a mix of some organic compost. Stand the root ball at the correct depth - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below soil level. Fill the hole, press firmly down and water immediately. If the temperature drops and there are signs of frost it is advisable to give the vine some protection.
Give extra water during dry periods. Vitis vinifera is reasonably winter-hardy, but in pots they are more sensitive to frost. So in winter you should protect the plant against frost. Place the pot in a cool frost-free room. This room may be dark, as the leaves will fall off anyway. The plant really goes to sleep during winter. As soon as the winter has passed, you can move the plant outdoors again.
Pruning wine grape vine
The grape is a climber that usually needs support. The same applies to these grapes. By keeping the plants compact, these grapes can also be grown as solitary tub plants. An eye-catcher on your patio or decking! For this, the long shoots must be pruned immediately in spring. This must be done immediately behind the places on the shoots where the bunches of flowers are located. This is usually near the main stem. As a result of this, no additional support is required.
In autumn, the beautiful bunches of grapes will appear! Enjoy the sight of the lovely ripe grapes of Vitis vinifera. These wine grapes are perfect as table grapes, but have a different taste.
