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.
