Traditional Vine Plants
This is a one-year old classic grafted vine that has been field grown. It has a developed root system and a dormant woody stem. They are shipped ready pruned to leave three buds and waxed to preserve the latter until the vines are planted. There are 100 vine plants per pack. They can be cut further back on request.
Planting is recommended in Spring or even Autumn – at this later stage, special care is called for by planting in a humped ridge of earth.
The Long Plant
The long plant limits unwanted shoots partially or totally.
It is delivered in dormant form like the classic variety.
Its long grafted stem offers numerous advantages :
- Weed and grass resistant
- Protects from rabbits and blocks herbicide drift
- Pruning to shape and removing unwanted shoots is easier
The Super pot
The super pot is a one-year old classic vine which has been cultivated during one season. It is handpicked and then grown in a 1-liter pot of compost.
The plant is left to develop in the pot throughout the summer generating a prolific root system.
This is the ideal solution if you need to replace rootstocks early on in the season : from September to December.
