Grapes are a great addition to the edible landscape. They can be planted by an arbor and used as shade or planted along a fence and used as a border. Grapes will grow in zones 6-10 and are pretty easy to grow. Site selection is important, choose a location with full sun and a southern exposure. The soil should have moderate fertility, with a pH of 5.5–7. Soak the roots in water for a couple of hours before planting. Plant at the same level that they were planted in the nursery. You want to initially train your new grape to a single stem. Watch our Planting Grapes video for more helpful information to successfully grow grapes for eating or wine-making.
