Indoor grape vine

Lincolnshire, United Kingdom Gb

I have three well established summer house grape vines (The vines are 20 ft in length). Every year around May i loose virtually all the young fruit (they shrivell up and die, like going to seed?). The vines are very healthy and very strong growing with a lot of potential fruit on them. I've tried everything over the years; lots of water, no water, manure, heat, air etc etc but i still loose the young fruit. Antone with any ideas??



how do you polinate them? try brushing pollen from flower cluster to flower cluster with a soft brush, small make up brushes are good for this. some plants do what is called june drop when the plant seems to 'know' that it cant maintain all the fruit. apparently its a plant hormone thing.
thats all i can suggest other than a fine misting of the flowers to help fruit set.
