Wild Grape Leaf
I’ve not been very successful with modern commercial grape varieties that I’ve tried here at our home but the wild grapes do well. Well at growing at least. They don’t produce a lot of grapes and what they do offer are quite small and bitter.
I do have one commercial grape vine growing up by the cottage that I have not yet managed to kill. It is on the south east face of the cottage up against the stonework and sheltered well from the wind. This gives me hope that with the right varieties and micro-climates I might be able to grow more.
We’re in Zone 3 which is a pretty tough climate. I would be curious to hear from anyone in our climate, or harsher, who is succeeding with grapes. What varieties and tricks have you found that work?
