The Q&A Archives: Ruby Seedless Grape Transplant

Question: Our ruby seedless grape did not bear fruit this year: how should we prune, when can we transplant the grape.
thanks jimmy

Answer: This grape is winter hardy in USDA zones 7 through 9, so it may be that the plant is still becoming established in your garden or may need a more sheltered/warmer position. It will bloom and set fruit on new growth of the season, so pruning is typically done in late winter, cutting the plant back very hard to leave only a few buds. Do not prune it during the summer or you will be removing the current crop. Grapes do well in average soil and in full sun. If you think transplanting will be helpful, the best time to do so would be in late winter to very early spring.
