  • 1st time grape vine

    hi all,
    I have been looking into growing a single strawberry vine grapevine in an old bath tub in my back garden up against a south facing walland was wondering if anyone had tried growing vines in pots and any probs I might come across ,the only concern I have is will the roots have enough room ,any thoughts or tips will be very helpfull,thanks,much love

    A bath tub sounds nice and generous Robert. So long as you keep the soil rich and watered (leave the plug in?) I think it'll do OK.

        'Grapevines tend to have deeper and less dense root systems than many other plants, so it's important to plant grapes in deep soils whenever possible. The health of a grapevine plant is often an indicator of its root growth. Grapevine root systems also vary somewhat, depending on the variety of grape.'

          I read Grapes are drought tolerant after 7 years because they have such a deep taproot,
          So maybe it won't be deep enough.
