Ever dreamed of owning your own vineyard? Make a start now and in a few years time, you could be bottling your own vintage. Grape vines make a dramatic and beautiful feature in a conservatory or trained on a pergola, and can be grown indoors in pots. Large frilled leaves provide cool shade while the vines work on producing delicious fruits.
Choose your Grape vines
For growing grape vines outdoors in our less than Mediterranean climate, we recommend the white Phoenix, red Vanessa or Crimson varieties. Muscat Blue is also perfect for growing on a balcony, pergola or trellis in the garden. For growing indoors in pots, Lakemont Seedless and Boskoop Glory are good choices. Can’t choose? Try our Red and White Seedless Grape Collection. And if you’re in it for the long haul, Black Hamburgh vines have been found still producing fruit after 230 years.
Where to grow your Grape vines
Plant your outdoor grape vines in well-drained soil in a south facing spot and support them on a wall or trellis. If you’re growing grape vines indoors, they’ll need large pots and to be trained with wires or twine along walls or ceilings. Wherever you plant your grape vines, they’ll appreciate regular feeding with an organic fertiliser and regular top-ups with compost to encourage vigorous growth and fruit production.
Grape vine plant care tips
Grape vines grow vigorously and will need to be pruned throughout Spring, Summer and Winter and dead leaves removed in Autumn. They’ll typically take a couple of years to start producing fruit, taking time to grow strong and establish themselves first. We’ve put together a care guide for growing grape vines, with all the hints and tips you need for planting, training and harvesting your plants - read it here.
