Pruning Grape Bonsai

Growing Grapes

We have plenty of wild concord grapes on ourproperty. However, the insurance company doesn't approve of our harvesting methods so it'sprobably best to plant some cultivated grapes. When I cleared the land for the greenhouse,it left plenty of area to plant various fruit producing plants which don't need the greenhouseto thrive. Plus why waste the space just growing grassé Taking a look at my 3rd grade drawing skills,I'm going to set three 4x4x10' treated posts 34 feet into the ground and space them 24'apart. This will allow for 8 plants in the space. Then I'll string 12 gauge galvanizedwire starting with the first wire 4246quot; from

the ground, then space the other two 12quot; apart.The plants can be spaced 6' apart and over time the vines can be trained along the 3wires. I had planned to set the posts first in theevent that I hit any large rocks while digging, however I blew a seal on the backhoe and hadto find some parts for it. So I took my chances and put the plants in first. The row shouldgo in a straight line and a 100' tape measure works well for marking out the locations ofeach post and plant. Jamming a piece of survey's tape at each mark does the trick. We're goingoldschool and using a pickaxe and shovel and digging a hole about 1 foot deep. Luckilythere weren't any large rocks in the way just

a few roots and small stones that the pickaxewas able to pluck out. Later, looking at the post holes, you'll see why I didn't dig themby hand. Planting the vines is fairly easy. I got theseseedless concord grapes from Gurney's for half price. I just remove the fiber that'sused for keeping the roots damp, spread out the roots a bit, and set it in the hole sothat all the roots that emerge from the vine will be just below the finished level of thesoil. All the dirt that came out of the hole was hardpan so I filled it with nice organicsoil, then compacted it down, and gave it a really good watering. It also importantto cover the area with mulch to help maintain

the moisture in the soil until the roots canget established. These will get watered every day for a couple of weeks. The actual work of planting the vines is quick.It's the preparation of digging out the rocks that takes all the time. A 30 cent Oring and a day to dismantle andreassemble the valve assembly and the backhoe is running again. I can now install the postsfor the wire arbor. It may not be the fastest backhoe, but it beats digging through therock with a pick and shovel. The holes are dug to about 4 feet which will provide a deepenough anchor to prevent the posts from leaning

from the future weight of the vines. Someof the rocks that I pulled out where bigger than the hole. If I had to dig these by hand,I probably would have only dug down a couple of feet, and then would have to anchor theposts with concrete and guywires. It seems like a really big hole for a post,but without an auger with rock drilling bit, it's probably the easiest way to set a post.A little cleanup at the bottom of the hole and it's ready. I'm using 4x4 treated lumberrated for direct burial. I'm not a fan of using treated lumber, but in order for itto last a long time, it's a necessary evil. I like to add two temporary cleats to thepost to help support it while I'm set it plumb

and backfill the hole. I also like to dropa few rocks around the base to hold it in place when I start to fill it in. I'll fillthe hole several inches at a time and compact it between each layer, then clean up the areawith some more woodchip mulch. The first wire starts roughly 4246 inchesfrom the ground and the second and 3 wires are spaced 12 inches apart. It will be theperfect snacking height for the deer. At each marking I'll drill a 38quot; hole through thepost and then put in a 516quot; eyebolt. The back side has a large fender washer and nut.Having a large washer will help to keep the nut from pulling into the post under the weightof the vines. It's fairly important to make

Bonsai Starter kit How to make a Bonsai tree

A fun way to start grow Bonsai trees, is to buy astarter kit and grow and train a Bonsai tree yourself. In this movie we will show the progression of this young plant, after pruning, wiring and repotting, this was the result. A starter kit usually contains a young plant, a Bonsai pot, some wire and soil. Alright, so lets get started on this tree. First of all, we start to clean out the tree. Carefully study your tree, and decide onwhat shape you intend to create in it.

While it is easy to prune branches, it canbe very hard to make them grow back. Once you have decided which branches should be removed,prune these, slowly working your way up the tree. Start with freeing up the trunk a bit. When pruning larger branches, you need a concave cutter. This cutter leaves behind a hollowwound, that heals much better. After pruning the larger branches, focus on smallerbranches, until you are satisfied with the result. Next, we wire the branches, starting with the larger ones. Carefully apply wire around the branchesat an angle of about 45 degrees.

Try to wire two branches of the same thickness with one wire. As a rule of thumb, apply wire about 13 the thickness of the branch. When you're done wiring the larger branches,work your way towards the smaller ones. Finish wiring the entire tree, before you startpositioning and bending the branches. Now that we have pruned and wired the tree, it is time to repot it. To get started, we prepare the Bonsai pot. Place two wires that can be used later onto attach the tree firmly to the pot. We also cover the watering holes by attaching a plastic mesh.

When the pot is ready, we prepare the soil mix. Usually a starter kit comes with premixed bonsai soil,but if not, check our website for more information. Now remove the plant from its plasticcontainer and get rid of any loose soil. We also want to reveal the trunk a bit. Carefully unravel the roots using a roothook. To make the tree fit in the pot, you will need to prune away roots. You can prune up to about 13 of the total root mass. Now, put some soil in the pot.

The tree is now ready to be placed in the pot, but first,decide on what the front of the tree should be. Place the tree just off the center and attach it carefullywith the wires that were attached in the pot earlier. Cover the roots with soil and by using chopsticks wemake sure that the entire rootmass is filled with soil. When we're done, we water the tree. Now we have a Bonsai tree; pruned, wired and repotted. So what's nexté Remove the wire after a few months,otherwise the branches would get damaged. Check our website, bonsaiempire , for more information!.
