Grape Vitis 'Vroege van der Laan' white

Vitis vinifera 'Vroege van der Laan'
Small and sweet
Deliciously sweet little grapes. The grape 'Vroege van der Laan' (Vitis vinifera) makes excellent juice and looks brilliant in a fruit bowl. The 'Vroege van der Laan' flowers inconspicuously in the summer. After flowering, the grapes form bunches. Birds also love it! The plants can be harvested from the end of the second summer after they have been planted. The plant grows to about 5–7 metres high. 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.

If you buy deciduous shrubs in autumn they might not be looking quite as beautiful as usual. The big benefit of planting shrubs in autumn is that by spring they will be well rooted in the garden and ready to burst into growth.

Planting+

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.

Care+

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.
 

Extra+

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.
