  1. Wonderful! Maybe someday I’ll try growing grapes. 🙂

    Thank you(and your husband too) as opinion seems divided. However, judging from the photo, yours are doing well- I will tell Mum tomorrow. A small moth might be able to shelter under her vine at the moment…

    That’s so impressive! My mum bought a grapevine a month ago and it’s growing quite nicely but you have GRAPES!!!


    • They’ll get bigger and ripen by August. . . . 🙂

        Is it right you can’t let them fruit for the first year..?


        • I referred this to my resident-expert husband: you can, but most grapes won’t fruit the first year anyway. If they do, they won’t usually bear very many their first year. When we got a few their first year, we still had a fruitful bounty the second and subsequent years.

          I wanted to add the other virtue of our vines: the provision of shade in Effieland. Effie loves napping under them!
