Caring and Maintenance

Grapes are pretty drought tolerant, however it is best to water thoroughly in dry spring and summer conditions. Remove any weeds or rocks and place a mulch around the plant in winter if you would like to avoid further weeds.

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.

RHS Award of Garden Merit

The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.

This is an example of our polypot - note the fruit/ornamental trees we stock will vary in appearance according to species and season.
