How to Grow Grapes - 1st Step is Patience
by: Bob Hirsch

The first step in the process of how to grow grapes is to have a lot of patience. Grapes can take three to four years to grow. That's a long time if you are looking to make wine quickly but it can be well worth it. The quality of the grapes relies on a lot of different variables and the time it takes for the grapes to grow just adds to the quality of the grape itself. It is also very helpful if you know the exact type of grape that is good to grow in your climate. There are different grape stocks for different climates.

How to grow grapes in your climate is a question that is best well researched before any grape stock is purchased. You could spend years trying to grow a grape that really wasn't suited to your climate only to find out you have grown a lousy grape. That's a lot of years spent for nothing. The best thing to do is talk with someone in your local nursery for advice on which grapes will do the best in your climate and soil. You can also ask other grape growers in the area which grapes they prefer.

Once the variety of grape has been decided on the question of how to grow grapes becomes once of what portion of your property to grow them on. Grapes prefer full sun and require access to moderate water. You need to have a place that is exposed to both. Grapes require a lot of tending to so you will want to have them in an area you can get water to without much problem. The Sun is very important to if there is any shade near the grapes you run the risk of infecting the plants with fungus.

Some other tips in the how to grow grapes scenario is to make sure and plant your grapes from nursery stock or cuttings. This is the best way to get your grape crop growing as quickly as possible. You want to make sure you have a good solid trellis for the grapes to grow up and around on. Grapes need a solid base to grow on. You will begin to get fruit growth in one year and pruning is essential. Do the pruning when the vines are dormant. Remove brown leaves and trim long runners to keep the grapes compact.
