When to plant grapes?
Grapes are a plant that loves light and warmth. The landing site should be elevated, with a good outflow of water, plots of land located to the south or south-west of the buildings and not closer than 3-5 meters from the large trees. Grapes seedlings are best bought in nurseries, since they are already vaccinated, resistant to diseases and future frosts. The external inspection should weed out seedlings with mechanical cuts, stains, with signs of dried stem. When to plant grapes - in the autumn or in the spring?
From mid-April to May we plant lignifiedstems, and from the beginning of June - green vegetative seedlings. And when is it better to plant grapes? End of September - early October is the best time for planting grapes. Plants have time to adapt to the forthcoming cold. In this case, the main thing is to properly plant them and cover them for the winter, and at the same time the prices for seedlings are minimal.
Planting in the spring
- If the soil is black earth or clay, dig a hole0,8х0,8х0,8 meters, and if the soil is sandy, then the pit 0,8х0,8х1,05 meters - fill the pit with fertilizers (humus, superphosphate, wood ash, potash fertilizers) two to three weeks before planting, watering the water once in 7 days.
- Make a hole under the container 60 cm from the surface.
- We take the seedling from the container (trying not to scatter the soil from the roots) and fall asleep with the peg-support to fix the seedling to the south side.
- After planting abundantly watered.
Planting in Autumn
The place is chosen, as well as in the spring, the fossa andfertilizers in it are the same, only the seedling is planted in the hole (it is desirable to dress a cut plastic bottle on the stalk, it will retain moisture), falling asleep with simple soil until it grows. Spread abundantly (3-4 buckets of water). For winter we cover with a protective layer of soil, trying not to make a large mound above the cuttings (that the seedling will not suffocate), in the spring the hillock is not destroyed until the appearance of green shoots. It is desirable to tie the pegs to the peg in the direction of the south.
For a good harvest, it is not enough just to know whenplant grapes, we must constantly care for the vine, timely watered and sheltered from frost, in this case, the grapes will thank you with an excellent crop!
