Where to buy grape seedlings A dozen how to plant

You can buy seedlings in the online store, on private sites of winegrowers, there is probably an opportunity to contact the breeder Kitaychenko himself.

Grapes are planted in spring or autumn. The safest way to dig a cubic meter hole in the fall. You need to take two buckets of humus, some wood ash, about half a bucket, and 200 gr. superphosphate.

First, fill the bottom of the pit with the top layer of soil that was removed from the first bayonet of the shovel, then add earth, humus and superphosphate layer by layer, carefully shoveling each layer. Plant seedlings in the spring.

The optimal distance between rows is 3 meters, between bushes in a row - 3 meters, in the row spacing you can 2 meters.

The vines have a very large root system, and the larger the feeding area, the better.

Remember about the groundwater level, if it is close to the surface (at a level of 40-80 cm), then the planting hole will need to be "raised", that is, after planting, the seedling should be on a small elevation.

Care rules

For good fruiting, grapes need complete care, which includes:

  • correct planting: it is important to provide plants with a sufficient nutritional area, not to thicken the planting; choose a southern, sunny place, without drafts;
  • shrub formation, pruning and debris;
  • watering;
  • fertilization;
  • loosening the soil in the first year;
  • protection from infections and pests.

Any grape requires a lot of attention, otherwise it will overgrow, or even die from some disease.

What diseases the variety is susceptible to, effective preventive measures

The best prevention is correct planting, timely pruning and all the necessary work. A healthy, strong plant will protect itself from pests.

However, preventive treatments are still needed:

  • the first is carried out in the spring, when the air temperature warms up to 4-6 degrees, the bushes are sprayed with a 1-3 percent solution of ferrous sulfate;
  • from fungal diseases, after opening the eyes;
  • if necessary, it is possible to re-process it before flowering in 1-2 weeks.
  • the next one, from fungal diseases, is carried out in the summer, after a period of flowering and setting of berries;
  • in the fall, in front of the shelter, the vines, as well as the soil next to the plants, are sprayed with fungicides.
