Choose to plant grapes

To decide to undertake the cultivation of vines and produce table or wine grapes, you need to have very sunny soil. This is the primary condition, as vines do not like shady or damp places. Unless you have space for many plants, in which case you can undertake the cultivation of wine grapes, you can choose to plant table grapes, white or red, with or without seeds. There are many varieties; they range from the famous Italy grape, from the large and juicy grain, to the Pizzutello Bianco, and again to the Red Globe, to the Big Perlon, very productive, the Regina, Victoria, Rosada, Palieri and many others. To choose the best type for each climate, you can contact a nursery in your area, which can advise you best, or search online for a suggestion, once you have identified the characteristics of the soil and the climate in which the plants will be positioned. optimal of the rows is that carried out on a degrading ground which ensures good drainage and absence of stagnant water.


How to plant grapes

Once the variety of vines to be implanted has been identified, we proceed with planting. It must be taken into account, in addition to the good ventilation and sunshine of the plant, that the vine needs space, therefore each stem will be spaced at least 2 - 3 meters apart. The vine lives many years, even a hundred, so it is good to foresee this particular. The best time to plant grapes is from October to May. It is necessary to dig a hole of about 50 cm, which allows the roots to position themselves well. In the hole any stones and roots must be eliminated and soil improved by compound manure and planting soil must be added. The screw must be positioned in the hole so that the grafting point is just above the ground; fill the hole with soil, if necessary mixed with other planting soil, and press well. Around the stem it is better to create a small basin which will be watered abundantly. If you plant in the fall, tuck the earth around the graft point, covering it, to protect it from frost.
