I was told to bury them at least 1" deep but read that up to 4" would be good as well. I dug through the mulch in my flower bed and laid down a few inches of miracle grow potting soil. Then I put the rhizome down roots down sprouts up and covered with a couple of inches of the potting soil. I have almost 20 pine trees on my lot so I covered the mound with pine needles to prevent weeds.
planted 8-10 ft apart with a 7ft tall trellis to make it easier to harvest the fruit..
no yield yet, only been planted for about 6 days
however, i know people that have this same variety and they can get up to 110 gallons of wine off 2 vines..
you likely will not see those kinds of yields for several years. I have several different varieties that I have planted over the years and they say it takes about 4-5 yrs bfore they really produce. I think mine were a little quicker than that though.
I'm hoping to get enough for a 1 gallon batch this season.. and let it sit..
i dont care really.. i'm excited for the little savings that i'll have over the seasons..
and it'll be pretty fun walking out and picking a bunch of grapes for a fruit salad as well
