Care Instructions

  • Grapes should be planted in a sheltered location so they don’t get beaten up by the wind and in full sun.  The more sun you can give a grape plant the better.  The south facing side of a shed or fence is perfect.
  • Grapes should be planted in the spring or fall into moist fertile soil.  They should be well watered all through the season.  Grapes do not like to be bone dry for extended periods of time and will start to wilt if that happens.
  • They should be planted about 6-8 feet apart to allow for trellising.
  • You can remove up to 90% of the vine in the fall.  Grapes flower on new growth so you will not be losing any of the fruit.  Just make sure you have a couple good buds left on the stalk.
