25 year old grape vine not well.


By samba


Can anyone identify the cause of the problem I have with this 25 year old grape vine? This year the fruit has not developed like previous years. About four weeks ago I used a generic fungal spray on it, but this doesn’t appear to have had any effect. Does anyone know if there is anything else I can do to save the vine?

Thanks for looking!

this looks as if the plant has got too hot. This happened to mine last year and it is fine so far this year.
increase the watering and improve the ventilation and i hope you see some improvement.
