"Looks great! Are you pruning it? and if so, how?
How do you protect them in winter (if you keep them outside) and what climatezone are you in?
I am growning grapes from cuttings, set the cuttings last fall, and left them outside throughout winter. This year, they grew a lot and the roots had grown beautifully when i repotted them a month ago.
Now i am wondering if i should put them in the ground to overwinter best, or if they would manage in their pots if i just insulate them a bit”
Hi there Mamis,
Such a beautiful tumblr you have! I saw your question as above regarding the little grape. Our system is outdoors, and is fairly protected from the winter weather here, we don’t have snow, and last winter the coldest we reached was around -4DegC. We get quite a thick frost blanket, that is about it.
We are in Victoria in Southern Australia and are a temperate zone here (according to the link provided) https://www.greenharvest.com.au/SeedOrganic/ClimateZones.html.
In truth, we have just let it be, we don’t prune it, and have just let it grow. We actually have two, but this is the biggest and our first to bring fruit, we won’t see first grapes on the second one until next year.
It had to compete with huge tomatoes last season, but this time we will leave it be with just a forest of leeks.
I am really interested on how your setting cuttings for grapes though, i have never tried that! do you have a post on how you did it at all?
I am sorry can’t offer you more than that in regards to over wintering, but the very best to you, thanks very much!
