|The wall perfect for the vines|
We went to our local garden centre and bought a red and white grape vine, as you can see they are very simple and nothing fancy. I was wondering if we should have looked into this more and brought better grape variety, then I remembered I am not a wine maker. Though I am a good wine drinker.
I planted them and ran some wire for them to start growing against. Mr MC&W drilled holes using a drill with a masonry bit for a raw plug then screwed a screw in, he then fed the wire round them. He did two heights of wire to help support the vines as they grow.
So far they are doing really well and maybe one year we will have a Mud, Cakes and Wine vintage out of it or I expect the birds will have a wonderfully tasty treat.
I will be attempting to prune these in early winter, that would be November time and will post then about how I go about this as a totally beginner with no idea what I am doing.
