The vine is on its third haircut and I've tried to put all the bunches of grapes hanging downwards.

There's grapes on the main branch and grape on the side branch so ...

I'm going to have my work cut out eating this lot when they're ready.

We've had a trip to the plant place where we originally bought this vine in the 80s and the 'mother' vine is still there. I've quizzed the now elderly owner on how he prunes and he's a lot more ruthless than me in removing shoots. 

I feel another haircut coming on!



  1. Mmmmm they look tasty.

  2. Are you going to make some wine?

    1. No, I don't drink much wine, I'd rather just eat the grapes. The garden man juices his grapes and then freezes the juice. I might try that.

  3. I watched Monty on Gardeners World he cut loads off his as well, saying it was better to have fewer growing, to get good results.

    Or just freeze the grapes i love frozen grapes. And refreshing in a cold drinks. Good then diet that way as you don't eat too many. X

  5. Just cut off what you don't want, back to the grapes. They're very forgiving plants.

  6. Fresh home grown grapes....Yummy.

    God bless.
