Planting and care
Plant dormant, bare-root grape vines in the early spring.
Construct a trellis or arbor before planting.
Grapevines will need to be trained to some sort of support to grow upward.
This will also cut the risk of disease. Most grape varieties are self-fertile.
To be sure, ask when you are buying vines if you will need more than one plant for pollination.

Caring For Black Grapes
- In the first couple of years, the vine should not be allowed to produce fruit. It needs to strengthen its root system before it can support the extra weight of fruit.
- Pruning is important. Not only would vines run rampant without control, but canes will only produce fruit once.
- Prune annually when vines are dormant, in March or April. This is before the buds start to swell, but when winter damage is apparent.
