Grapes are a climbing plant, taking up very little space, and can be successfully grown in a large container. There are two types of grape vine – those grown as dessert grapes and those for wine production, although some can be grown for both.
Dig a hole wider and deeper than the root ball of the plant, 15cm away from the fence or wall. Tease out the roots and spread them evenly around the planting hole then fill. Firm the soil - ensure that the top of the root ball is level with the surface of the soil. Mulch around the root area. Provide a framework or trellis to support the vine, and tie in the stems.
When the grapes are ready, the skins should feel soft to the touch and the grapes taste sweet and sugary.
