Hi folks,

Can anyone recommend a grape variety for growing outdoors in a south to south easterly aspect, in a 20 inch deep oak barrell, against a wall?

Have any of you experience training a vine along wire, against a wall?

artalis Very Happy

outdoor grapes are trained much different to indoor types. The soots produced in the current year are tie(d down horizontally in the Autumn. The stems that have fruited are cut back to base. I have no varieties to recommend.
