Hi Rebel,

I'm presently growing a red grapevine for the 1st time. I planted it outside but next to my glasshouse so that the vine could be directed into the glasshouse and along the glass ceiling. It's presently growing at quick rate and recently started to span the ceiling. I have no grapes as yet which I hope is normal.

I bought it at 4homes

Regards

I don't know if this is any good to you or not; but Homebase has some beautiful looking grape vines for €150approx.

The truck I would say is about 7-10cm diameter.

I planted 75 vines three years ago. Rondo (red), Orion (White) and Phoenix (White). I did get some grapes this year, but of course the weather was disastrous - I've just finished pruning and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for next year - wine go leor I hope!

Well tomorrow is open season here between starlings and grapes with mise sa lár. There's been ongoing competition between me and de stares every Sep/Oct since 2008. This year I have the netting up earlier and more of it. i don't know what I'd do if I had a whole vineyard. The grapes are sweetening nicely but swelling ever so slowly due to the ongoing Essex drought. Attached photo was taken at 1600 today (30thSep) and the temperature in the garden has just dropped back from 27ºC in the last hour. We had our last drop of rain three weeks ago.
