My garden journal:Do something different!

This week I am concentrating on growing Vines.

I have bought an outdoor variety. Vitis

I am going to  plant it outdoor in a container with John Innes No 3 potting compost(loam-based).

The pot needs to be quite large30-38cm.

It requires a sunny position.

They need to have a good circulation of air to prevent powdery mildew.

There are various cultivars to suit your taste.

Pinot Noir has black grapes.

Phoenix is a white grape that has good resistance to powdery mildew.

Wasps can be problematic.

My apricot tree has had to be removed.

I will therefore fill the space with a vine .

I may have to wait a while to see any grapes.

However, watching the plant grow will add another point of interest in my garden.
