KC5383 Grapevine Plant - Flame Red (Seedless) which is supplied as a grafted plant in a 2 litre pot and Cost £18.99 arrived this week on the 4th February
Flame is one of the most popular self-fertile varieties of grape that taste even better just picked from the vine.
When growing grape vines choose a sunny position in any well drained soil. A south facing position against a wall is ideal, and I'm blessed in having such a wall.
The problem is that lots of things were stacked up against it and what remained of the seeded grapes that have been there for some years. I visited the allotment plot on Friday the 5th July late in the afternoon and cleared the area of wall beside the greenhouse on plot 1A exposing the eyebolts and wires.
Emma put in the red onion sets that arrived this week into the bed on the right, and I got the middle bed ready removing the Winter blanket, raking the topsoil and then finding the a 105 hole planting membrane.
