Grapes

Grapes are long-lived, they will be productive for around 40 years but won't bear fruit until three years after planting. Grapes are great for eating fresh or for making into wine.

Grapes need to be grown outdoors in as much sun as possible, site on a south, south-east, or south-west facing wall. Grapes will grow in all soils apart from shallow chalk and clay as long as they are free-draining. A mature grape vine will have an average yield of 6.5kg.

Grapes are available in containers all year round.
