It is important to regularly water your plant, at least bimonthly for two months. Grapes differ from other fruiting plants because their roots grow deep. Therefore it is important to give them a thorough watering. You should also ensure adequate spacing (1.8 - 2.7m) between vines, depending on the planting system you use. Please see below for our planting guidance:

  • Dig a hole that is twice the radius of your plant’s rootball.
  • Before planting, drench the rootball.
  • Place the pot in the planting hole, making sure that it sits no lower than an inch below the ground.
  • Fill the planting hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, finishing with fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Take care to not compress the soil.
  • Provide your plant with a generous watering.
  • Add mulch on top, (whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould, and stones). Try to keep the mulch from touching the stem.

Depending on their location and hours of sunlight, grape vines can be slightly more challenging to grow. Below we address some common query topics:

  • Hardiness: while grapes originate from the Mediterranean and Central Asia, they are hardy enough to survive the UK's winters, although can suffer from frost damage. To avoid this, be sure to plant in a south-facing location.
  • Position: in the UK, the greatest barrier to successful fruiting is a lack of sunlight, so planting in full sun is recommended, especially in the case of grapes. Planting your vine in a sheltered spot will help prevent uprooting and allow it to put more resources into fruiting.
  • Soil Types: grape vines benefit from deep soils, but 3ft is adequate, and every plant will adapt to its conditions. The fertility and granularity of the soil determines fruit size, but small fruit size is not necessarily a negative with grapes, as grapes with larger skin to juice ratios are perfect for winemaking. Waterlogged soils will starve your vine of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis, cause its roots to rot and create the perfect environment for many diseases.
