Planting Grapes - Knowledgebase Question

Question by emsheff

I am wanting to plant some seedless concords. Am I better off to plant now and have the roots get established somewhat before winter? I could have the ground tested and be ready to plant within a couple of weeks.We still have a fair amount of time before frost comes.

Early fall is a good time to plant if you are setting out container-grown stock. The roots need time to become established before the ground freezes, so you don't want to wait too long. A rule of thumb is to plant about eight to ten weeks before the first average killing frost. Most grapes however are sold as bareroot plants and are only available in the spring so you may have to wait. Good luck with your grapes!
