You must have seen grapevines growing in the farm, but willing to bring this delicious fruit vine into your home garden, well follow these steps to grow grapes in pot...
Always select dwarf variety of grapes such as Pixie and pot should be 24 inches wide & at least 24 inches deep for healthy growth of roots.
Grapes grow well in wide range of well drained, nutrient rich soils. Prepare potting mix with 40% soil + 40% dung manure + one handful neem fertilizer + 4 tablespoon bonemeal.
Planting season varies from place to place. Fill bottom 1 inch layer with gravel, then till half with potting mix, spread roots & carefully add potting mix around the base of the plant.
Avoid planting them in low light areas. Always select a spot where your grape vine can receive at least 6 hours of sunlight daily.
Apply water immediately after plantation, pruning and fertilization. Keep the soil little moist but avoid waterlogging.
During active season, after every 30 days add a handful of dung manure + banana peel fertilizer + micronutrients for best growth of vines & fruiting.
Avoid pruning in the first year of plantation, but from second year prune grape vines during late winter or arly spring to promote new growth & fruiting.
