|Q:I would like to grow the Niagara Grape along my privacy fence and tack up the vine with vine tacks to the fence. Will the Niagara do well growing up a hard service like that?
Q:I have a drip line on my trees that may or may not trickle to the Niagra, do you think it would need more watering than that?
Q: I bought 7 niagara grape vines today, just as we laid grass sod! The sod needs to be watered 3 times a day for 12 days and is soaking the area I want to plant the vines, should I wait to plant the Niagara and if so, how do I care for them in their pots while I waite?
|As long as you can tie the grapevines up along the fence, the vines should grow quite well. The vines will need a deep soaking once a week until the roots are established so a drip system isn't required; just take the hose out and soak them deeply once each week. I'd keep the grapevines in their nursery pots until the sod is established. Your new sod will need much more water to establish than your grapevines will tolerate. Just keep the soil in the pots moist but not soggy wet until you can get your grapevines planted. Best wishes with your landscape!|
