Grapes grow on wooded vines in virtually all parts of the United States. They are generally characterised by colour or variety. Whatever the colour or variety, home gardeners find it relatively easy to grow this fast-growing vine.
New vines are planted in the spring. When planting grapevines, it is important to provide enough space. Grapes will grow as much as 10 to 15 feet in the first year. Muscadine vines can grow as much as 20 feet.
For the best growing conditions, plant grape vines in full sun on a hill or slope, if possible, for better drainage. Provide a fence or trellis to support the vines. The main vine should be trained to grow up the fence post with the secondary vines growing outward. Add fertiliser once a month during the growing season and water only during drought times. Observe the vines for insects and disease during the growing season.
New vines require a couple of years' growth before they produce grapes. Grapes are ready for harvesting in the fall.
