Grape Vitis 'Red Ruby' red

Vitis vinifera 'Red Ruby'
Grapes from your own garden
Are you a fan of grapes or wine? Then the grape 'Red Ruby' (Vitis vinifera) is ideal! The climbing plant first produces unassuming clusters of flowers, then the grapes grow. Then fresh grapes are ours to enjoy. Or we can make our own wine! Butterflies and bees also adore the 'Red Ruby'. The perennial fruit shrub blooms with unassuming bunches of flowers during the summer. The plants can be harvested from the end of the second summer after they have been planted.
Grapes requires support while growing. Be sure to secure the vines to a climbing base or woven structure. We prune the plant once in the winter and once in the summer after blooming. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth. For this reason, the fruit bush should be planted in full sun. Grapes thrive in well-drained garden soil. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells.

Ensure a well-drenched root ball before planting your Vitis vinifera - soak the plant in a bucket of lukewarm water.
Prepare a large hole and loosen the soil with a fork. Improve poor soil with a mix of humus rich compost before planting your grapevine at the correct depth - the top of the root ball should come to just below soil level. Fill the hole and heel well in before watering generously.
Vitis vinifera will thrive in a humus rich, permeable soil in the sun. Plant extra vines 150-200 cm apart. Growing in the greenhouse is of course also possible - as is, in a large planter on the patio, although your harvest will then be somewhat curtailed.
A grape is a climbing vine that needs support along a fence, pergola or a wall. Use chicken wire in places that need somewhere to tie the shoots in. Water extra in dry periods. Give a dose of lime in the autumn and a good mulch of mixed organic fertiliser in the spring. The soil should not be too wet for too long, this will not be tolerated. Keep birds off with netting or some other form of protection.
