How To Grow A Grape Vine

I know that some people would like to have both eating grapes and wine grapes at the same time. Yes you its possible. But if that’s what you’re after I would suggest that you plant two different sorts of grape vine – one that is good for eating and one that is good for wine. Now once you know what you want your grape vines for, it’s time to go out and buy grape vines. You’ll still need to know which plants are suitable for your geographical area and I would suggest that you consult an expert on this.

It is so easy, just simply go to one of the neighbors that already has a well growing grape vines, and ask him a couple of questions. In my experience, people are always excited talk about their vines. Go and look for a good site for your vine. Lots and lots of sun and rich soil, is what vines need, so choose wisely. I would suggest that you build the support for your vines before you start planting. If you try to do this later on, you might damage the plants. There are various types of support that you can use. To build the most basic one, just drive some stakes into the ground and then connect them with wire.

If your vine grapes grow over a wall, you don’t need to do anything at this point, but you may have to put a couple of nails in that wall later on. So remember that always. Now it’s ready to put the plants into the ground. And believe it or not, that’s the easy step. Just dig a small hole, put the plant in, and tap the dirt around it. Done. You’ve just became a vine grower. From now on, you’ll have to make sure that your vines have plenty of water, are fertilized and pruned. Once again, consult an expert ( in your area to know how much water and fertilizer is needed. This will vary from area to area. With regards to pruning, you won’t have to do any of it in the first 6 months. After that, just sit back, relax and let your vines grow
