Grape seedlings not only produce sweet and versatile fruits, but they also add an element of uniqueness to a garden or landscape (especially when they grow into fruit-bearing trees).
- They are vigorous growers, and with the proper pruning, they will produce fruits with ease within a few years.
- Fruit production will last for 30 years or more!
Planting grape seedlings
- Select a site with full sun. However, if you don’t have a spot with full sun, make sure it at least gets morning sun.
- Your soil needs to be deep, well-drained, and loose.
- You also need good air circulation.
- Grapevines will need to be trained to some sort of support to grow upward. This will also cut the risk of disease prevalence. The support needs to be in place at planting, people have used sturdy trellis or arbour for the job.
- Before planting grapevines, soak their roots in water for two or three hours.
- Water at the time of planting.
- Do not fertilize in the first year unless you have problem soil. Fertilize lightly in the second year of growth.
- Use mulch to keep an even amount of moisture around the grapevines.
- A mesh net is useful in keeping birds away from budding fruits.
- Japanese beetles
- Powdery mildew
- Black rot.
