General Vine Information
All vines are at least 2 years old and grafted onto a root stock that will be 3 years old. This is to improve vigour (growth and fruit production). The vines are pruned back several times a year and can easily grow 1m (3ft) in a season. They might fruit in the first year, local conditions allowing, certainly the second.
Bred to be Phylloxera resistant.
Vines will last 100's of years if looked after and outdoor vines can be successfully grown outdoors as far North as Yorkshire (depending on weather conditions).Indoor grapes have been grown in a Greenhouse in Aberdeenshire.
Give them as much sun as possible, keep ventilated and humidity down. This applies to indoor and outdoor grapes.
