This was my container growing grapes this year so far until last week…
I saw this beautiful post about grape vines in containers and it inspired me to reshape my own grape vine.
I found a cage style support which seemed better than my home made flat trellis so I tried to be brutal and pruned my grape vines down to a few shoots. Keeping two main longer ones to reach the top ring of the new cage support.
I thought my grape may not have made it. Towards the end of summer, he lost all his leaves in a nasty way. Look like they just were not healthy and all slowly fell off. Other grapes in the neighbourhood appeared to be doing great and still had their leaves for a couple a months before mine had shed all of its leaves already. So I’m so happy to see all this wonderful new growth on my grape vine! And I am surprised how rapidly it is growing! My homemade trellis seems kind of small. I will build a bigger one when I get a chance. I have seen images of people shaping their grape vines into a tree shape. Now that’s an idea!
These pix are all from the last couple of weeks.
