How to care for my Black Hamburg grape vine in the greenhouse. It is in its 3rd year. I layed it down at the end of November as the books sugest. I cut the rods back by a third to a bud. No sign of growth anywhere yet. Do I just tie it back up when it looks as if growth has started.




It is too early for the vine to be growing yet, but once it does then yes tie it back up to the trellis or whatever you are using to support it.

Thanks Moon grower. As it was a surprise birthday gift a year last October, I had no idea how to look after it. The books are so confusing as I don't understand the terms they use.

I better just check then, it is planted in the ground?

It's in a bed we built in the greenhouse about 18inches deep by 2ft square. I only have this photo from last November.

Should work but keep a watch on and unless it is open to the ground at the bottom you will have to water.

Thankyou for all your help. If it doesn't do much this year I will put it into the garden and let it take it's chances.

Should survive fine where you live. Good luck!
