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.
