You like this as much as I do, Karen! ..... It's amazed us at the rate it's growing, to the extent that Michael has to keep adding zig-zag wires across the pergola ... it'll cover the house walls before long ... lol!

I live in hopes that mine will look this good one day.........I have only had it 3 years and no sign of flowers even, yet.

Oh, that's a shame, Hb ... we planted this last year and the Starlings stripped most of the fruit ... they must have had strong stomachs as the Grapes were tiny and full of pips! .. This is 'Brandt' variety . . . . .

If it doesn't pull it's socks up next year I am moving it out of sight......

30 Aug, 2011

 

Oh dear, I bet it's quivering in fear! .....

30 Aug, 2011

 

LOl.....I poked it with the rake and told it what to expect. We will see if it took any notice next year....

Lol, Carole, just about to do a short blog on their progress ... all still hanging on the vine at the moment! :o)

How can you resist them Shirley, they look so very yummy. I've never grown grapes. Would love to try but have no greenhouse. Awe!!

16 Sep, 2011

 

Mmm ... they are so full of pips ... grape juice may be the answer! ... I do not have a greenhouse either ...this vine is growing outdoors under cover of a polycarbonate roof . . . . .
