Early spring is the best time to plant grape vines. During the first year, mulch your vine and keep free of weeds. Prune off broken or dead portions of branches and roots. At the same time, prune top growth to a single cane.
During the first year, grape vines are normally tied to a stake to keep them off the ground. If the season of planting is dry, supplemental watering is also necessary to keep the vines growing. It is important to get as much first-year growth as possible.
It usually takes about three years to establish a grape planting. Vines planted for training on a trellis are normally placed eight feet apart, while those planted for training on an arbor can be placed four feet apart.
In the second year, provide a support for the vines before growth begins. Either a trellis or arbor works well.
Grapes require heat, so plant your vine where it will get the most sun. Grapes do well in most soils as long as you have good drainage. Wet or heavy clay soils are not good for grapes. An ideal pH level for grapes is 6.5, but they grow well between 6.5 and 7.5.
Growing grapes is possible in a number of different growing zones. You’ll find even more information in the Plant Highlights section of each product page, such as the mature height and spread, sun exposure and growth rate.
