Growing Grapes in Your Home Garden

On impulse last week, I bought a small grape vine. A seedless Suffolk red table grape, not wine grape this time. Now that it's planted, what do I do next?

After some Internet searching, I found a great resource for growing grapes yourself. The Oregon State University Extension site has much of the information needed to grow grapes at home.

Topics include: Grape plant growth, Selecting a site, Soil, Selecting a cultivar, Planting stock and propagation, Establishing your planting, Care of established plantings, Pruning and training, Harvest and dealing with Pests. The included diagrams are a huge help in explaining how to properly train and prune your vines. Check it out.

If you have planted, or are thinking about planting grapes at home, then check out this resource.
