Home Vineyard Growing Wine Grapes at Home
Hello and welcome to my home vineyard Let's get a lay of the land. As you can see thisis just a simple side yard it's got about 55 feet of space long twentysix feet of space wide we elected to go with twenty twofoot long rows northsouth facing uh. the rows are spaced about five feet apartto give us ample space for the vines to grow
and for us to manage and walk through we are planting about four plants per row to give it plenty of space to spread out and grow for the rows, we used uh. just simple fenceposts these are eightfoot fence post sunk about threefeet deep we tried to go about two feet deep butit wasn't uh. it just simply wasn't stable enough so we went that extra foot for stability
the wire is fourteen gauge wire uh. we elected to go with the verticaltrellising partly because it was easier and partlybecause uh. the north south facing rows, it allow it to get sun at all hours of the day uh. we have a drip irrigation linesran along the bottom we will be using half gallon per hour drips two per plant that allows us to adjust the water
water flow and manage the irrigation a littleeasier than if we used a heavier flow we'll actually be planting syrah grapes because we tend to be in a warmer, drier climateduring the summer doing something like pinot noirwould require greater cooler temperatures. that sort of thing that's our vineyard. We'll be planting the grapes nextweek and we'll come back then.
Planting Garden Vines Family Plot
Hi Joellen! We have vines here. Vines! We want to try to cover this fence withthese vines. With these vines, okay. All right. And we're next to the garden, here, so wewant to attract some butterflies. Chris Sure. And bees and help pollinate the garden.So, we want somethin' that's gonna bloom throughout
the growing season. And that's what you needto consider when you are selecting a vine. Chris Okay. What is the vine's purpose in your gardenéI mean, is it supposed to just cover a trellis or an entrywayé Is it gonna be around a featureéOr is it gonna be a standalone planté And what are you trying to doé Are you tryin'to screen somethingé Do you need an evergreen vineé There are several evergreen vines outthere. Carolina jasmine is one. Chris Yeah, I'm familiar with that. And the Clematis armand is another one.But that's not our focus, here. Our focus
is to have it blooms as much of the seasonas we possibly can, so we have chosen two vines. One's native, is a honeysuckle, andthis is a red blooming variety that will bloom the majority of the summer. Okay. And is sempervirens and I believe this isMr. Wheeler. And this one is a Clematis that blooms a large part of the summer. It maynot bloom in the very heat of the summer, but it will when it's not really, really hotoutside. Chris Okay.
It'll bloom before and then after it. After it, okay. So, and it's a nice purple color that'llattract birds, and butterflies, and bees. Chris Yeah, it is pretty. And this is called Jackmanii. And so, we'llplant several of these here around the garden and hopefully it'll attract the bees thatwe are looking for for our vegetables. Okay. Do vines need a lot of help as faras growingé I mean, do you have to put fertilizers or, you knowé
Yes, you need to treat them just like youwould any of your perennials. Chris Okay. 'Cause they are perennial, they will losetheir leaves. These will lose their leaves, but the stems will still be there. You'regoing, we're going to plant them. They're gonna need well drained soil. Chris Yeah. And I know we have a problem with that inthis area, so we're going to add some amendment to raise up the area that we're gonna plantthem so we know that they will be well drained.
And then, I would put a little bit of fertilizerwith them. Chris Okay, so you would, okay. As when you plant them. And about once ayear fertilize and with a slowrelease fertilizer. In the fall, I'd let them do what they'regonna do. And I would let them go through the winter and in the spring is when I would,February is when I start looking at trimming them back if I was going to trim them. Chris Okay, okay. Okay. This one's already staked a littlebit and that's good. We'll leave that in the
Best Flowering Vines Clematis Parisienne Evipo 019
Hello, I'm David Wilson for GardenSplendor I want to tell you about a terrific new compact growing form of Clematis called Clematis Parisienne. Its part toRaymond Evison's Boulevard collection, andwhat makes this one outstanding is that it is very short and compact. Only growing about four foot tall, and itis marvelous for putting on places like mailboxes, low fences. perhaps around a swimming pool,
or a veranda, or somewhere like that. And, because it short and compact, and literally covered withflowers from top to bottom, it will make an idealplant for putting in containers too. So ifyou've got some pots on a deck or a patio, or a balcony. Thinkabout using some Clematis Parisienne. I think you're going to like how it does for you
