Grape Vitis 'Venus' blue

Vitis vinifera 'Venus'
Blue eye-catcher
A greatly admired variety with extra-large fruit and no seeds! The beautiful blue colour of the grape 'Venus' (Vitis vinifera) is an eye-catcher in the garden. The perennial fruit shrub blooms with unassuming bunches of flowers during the summer. After flowering, the grapes form bunches. The plants can be harvested from the end of the second summer after they have been planted. Guide the vines through a pergola construction or with tension wires. So, the bunches of grapes hang down nicely.
Plant the shrub when the ground is still warm in the autumn (until the first frost). Or in the spring when the risk of night frost has passed. Prune the plant once in the winter and once in the summer after blooming. Plant the Vitis a nice spot in full sun against a wall in the south. Give it extra water during dry periods.

Seasonal effects

The appearance of fruit trees and shrubs changes between seasons. From a bare plant lying dormant in winter to fresh greenery in spring, in full bloom during summer to leaves changing colour and dropping in autumn. This is a natural process courtesy of mother nature. Our plants will be delivered accordingly.

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.

Pruning grapes

With the correct pruning technique you can expect a decent grape harvest.
Allow new plants to grow one main shoot and tie it in. The following year(s), keep side shoots at the required height by training them horizontally along wires. Side shoots from them can be cut back just before Christmas to just two buds (eyes) and these will grow really quickly in the spring.
You will see tiny bunches of flowers appear around June. Adult plants should be allowed to keep 2 to 3 flower clusters per side shoot. Cut back in June to 1 leaf past the furthest cluster of flowers.
When the grapes are grown to pea size, thin them out to allow more of them to grow bigger. In September, cut leaves away to allow the sun access and the grapes to ripen better.


Depending on the weather, the grapes will be ripe from around the beginning of September. Vitis vinifera is a pest and disease resistant variety that produces fairly large grapes. A decorative vine, it will look really attractive along a pergola or fencing.
