The 2 year grape journey is a sweet and interesting journey of planting Thompson seedless grapes all the way to harvest so sit back and enjoy as we go through grape paradise so we started our grapes back in january.
Of 2015 this is the flame seedless grape we got this at home people and you can get these grape plants at any gardening center in your area and the first thing you need to do is.
Once you get the package you just open it and you want to make sure that the roots stay hydrated while you’re preparing your potting mix or while you are planning to plant this in the ground as you can see here this is a bare.
Rooted plant and you just keep it in water just make sure the roots stay hydrated while you prepare your potting mix we will be planting this in a container you can plant it in the ground as well.
And here we go it’s just a simple container with water and now we’re going to prepare our potting mix we’re going to be using a large pot grape trees grow into very large plants and need a lot of space for the roots so we’re gonna be.
Using this container, it has a lot of holes drilled as you can see a common question that a lot of users ask me is if you need holes in containers when growing plants and the answer is yes you do we’re going to be using a mix of peat.
Moss onethird of peat moss i’m just using this compressed bale of peat moss that you can get at any garden store make sure that you break up the pieces very well and to this mix we’re going to be adding onethird of compost now i’m.
Using some homemade compost here you can buy bagged compost if you want and some of my compost is unfinished so I’m going to be removing some of the unfinished compost from this mix and make sure that i have a lot of finished.
12 Fruit Trees that Thrive in the Desert with Little Care
Alright! This is John Kohler with growingyourgreens ! Today we have another exciting episode for you. And Im here in the desert. One of the hardest places to grow, it gets over a hundred degrees pretty much every day in the summer time.
Today in the shade it is a 100 and even out of the shade today today im like sweating bullets. . And where were at, were here in Phoenix, Arizona. And as you guys could see, I cant believe in 2016 people still have lawns! Lawns are a waste of space, specially in the desert, specially when you have to use so much water to keep your lawn green, right.
And people think ponds they waste water. Theres a study by the University of Arizona that shows a pond actually saves more water than having a lawn. Plus it actually attracts and provides a home for beneficial birds and insects and other creatures that can help you guys grow more food. I mean, heres another, heres another front yard of a house.
Were in a standard 70s neighborhood here. And I mean, this is way better. So they have rocks, way better than lawns. And yeah, if you guys still have a lawn, youre you know giving water to your lawn, put in rocks! Thats a move in the better direction.
Because guess what? With rocks you dont got no labor, right. You dont got any nothing, maybe you got to pull some weeds, dont spray that nasty round of stuff. That stuff will actually screw up your property, and create health hazards for the creatures. But better than rocks, whats better than rocks?.
Rolls! You know, rock and roll! No wait. Better than rocks, better than grass, is what we see right here in my friend Jake Mace. Hes done something totally different here in Phoenix. Hes growing fruit trees!.
So fruit trees are the easiest thing in the entire world to grow, just a little bit harder than having some rocks. And the benefit of the fruit trees is guess what? They make things for you guys to eat! We need to eat every day, right? Why have to go to the store?.
Its so inconvenient. Youve got to drive 15 minutes to the store, you got to pay your hard earned money for stuff, when you could invest money in your property that you own or are renting or whatever to grow your own food! And so what Im going to show you guys today at Jakes place, because I have tutorials that Ive done here before, check the links down in the description below where I give you.
