How You can Grow Grapes At Home

Grapes are a part of our family. We all indulge in them every season and end up spending considerably on grapes alone. Some people will prefer simply eating grapes while others will want to make wine and even dried raisins. If you too are captivated by this interesting fruit, here are some tips to help you learn how to grow grapes at home. You can grow as many grape plants as space and time allows it.

First you will have to pick one great place to grow grapes. The soil has to be of high quality and plenty of sunshine exposure is necessary. If not you can alternatively go in for soil treatment. Grape harvesting involves many minor tasks that can be a lot of fun and extremely satisfying.

Grapes will grow really well when the temperature is high because sun helps the plant properly ripen. Do not plant grapes in just any soil. It is highly important to use soil testing kits so that you will not spoil the harvest because of soil related problems. The good ph for grapes soil is around 6.8. Different soils that have PH levels as high as 8 have managed to produce good vineyards.

You can plant seeds or saplings during Spring as it is easier to treat soil then. Only try to plant those saplings that developed roots. We recommend that you always pour much water in the hole you dug for the sapling and keep on pouring when the soil is being spread as this eliminates possible air pockets near roots. The space between saplings needs to be around 7 feet. Cut roots that stand out being too long or show tears when you plant them. During the first month after planting your grape wines require weekly watering.

Do not overdue fertilizing the plants. It is really easy to harm your entire harvest if too much fertilization is used. Look for the symbol 10-6-4 on the package while choosing nitrogen. Always apply it 2 weeks after planting was done and yearly as spring begins. You only have to use 1 pound of high quality fertilizer for one plant, not more. You need to always avoid fertilizers that contain herbicides.

The new vines can actually grow randomly at first. However, in the next season you should pick stronger vines. One strong 5 feet stake can be used for this.

Regularly prune harvest and test the soil every 3 years. If pruning is not enough you will be faced with grapes of lower quality and in the event that you are pruning too much you will see a wild harvest that produces little fruits. Be very careful while picking grapes too. Taste is the best way to determine whether or not you should pick the grapes.

You will find these tips mentioned above help you if you wish to know how to grow grapes at home. Grapes can be grown to make snacks, raisins, fruit salads, wine and so on. It does not matter how you will end up using grapes as the tips are aimed to help you gain a better harvest.
