Caring for Grape Vines

Mulch around the base of the vine with well-rotted garden or farmyard compost every winter. Plant in well-drained soil that has been enriched with garden compost or well-rotted manure.

These rampant climbers need to be pruned for maximum fruit production. To promote fruiting spurs, prune out weak growth back to a few inches from the old wood in late winter.Train the vine on wires by tying in strong growths during the summer.

Where Can I Grow Grapes Outdoors?

Vines can be grown outdoors in southern Britain - the general guide is south of a line between Pembroke and the Wash. However, this area can be extended north if the planting spot is next to a sheltered west or south-facing wall, or in a coastal area influenced by the Gulf Stream. Use later-flowering varieties in borderline regions.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 1.2m - 1.5m apart in rows 1.5m - 1.8m apart

Grapes prefer well-cultivated and well-drained soil, with a pH of 6.5 - 6.8. They do best in full sun, but well sheltered conditions. Sandy gravel over chalk is an ideal growing site.
Dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball. Ideally mulch with compost or rotted manure. Firm the bush in well before watering. Cut vine back to 2 or 3 healthy buds to help with the growing process.

You should plant your grapes in early spring, March time if you can, though late autumn could be fine if the weather isn't too cold.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or made into wine within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into desserts, wines or with dessert grapes can be stored for upto 2 weeks in the fridge. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts or wine to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit.
