grape cuttings

Propagation of grapes by taking a cutting-eyed
Introduction:Self grapes grow? It can, everyone in his garden on a sunny south wall or shelter can easily have his own sweet, juicy fruits grow. You do not need to buy expensive greenhouse. I may guide you, with some good will, a good dose of energy, some useful tips and the proper way we are already well on the right track.
First I want some of my preferred varieties and thrive in our climate to introduce you:
* 'Boskoop Glory'Is supporting a very rich, blue outdoor grape variety in these parts easily ripe fruit gives this from late August to early October. These sweet and juicy grapes, the size of a small cherry, and a stunning, exceptionally beautiful autumn leaf discolouring that adds value to our garden in the fall.
* "Early Laan»The white grape in our area, also sweet and juicy. Perhaps a small weakness: the beautiful coloration of the leaf is missing here!
Some other species that qualify for outdoor cultivation:* Counsellor Depoorter (blue)* Chasselas de Fontainebleau (white)
Varieties that are only known to breed in the greenhouse:* Frankenthaler (blue)* Muscat of Alexandria (White)

Propagation by taking a cutting-eyed:Taking cuttings is best in the months from December to February when the vines are at rest. This can be done by taking cuttings or by one-eyed winter cuttings. The latter we treat with the most extensive for the obvious reason that it is the simplest and most successful method.

We always start from a healthy, thick pencil annuals sprout in the thawed state. This can perhaps be obtained from friends or acquaintances who like vines or perhaps you yourself have been the proud owner of a (possibly purchased) vine.
Note: the eyes or buttons must be sufficiently developed and free of disease.

Cut with a knife or cutting shears, a good place with an eye on it, the latter from the strong, one-year shoot. Cut 1 inch above the eye cutting diagonally (reason: water runs off, better drying and prevent mold) and cut the bottom flat cutting off a length of 5-7 cm below the eye.
Take immediate grafting wax hot or cold (possibly paraffin) or wound healing treatments on the slanted top of the wound site. The latter to avoid dehydration as well as protection against possible mold.

Insert the cuttings one-eyed man is now in a pot or container cutting (several clones) filled with a mixture of healthy soil and sharp sand (ratio 5 / 1). Insert the cuttings so that the eye or the button 1 inch above the ground. The extra soil around the cuttings press firmly to ensure good contact.
The soil should be moist but not wet.
Wrap the pot with a plastic bag or a piece of PET bottle in order to avoid dehydration. Pierce the bottle a bit to promote ventilation. Place the cuttings in a greenhouse with bottom heat (20 ° C) or just on the windowsill in the living room at room temperature (not in full sun burn =). Regularly check soil moisture and remove mold if necessary.

The eye of the site will soon swell, leak and a dash of form, this does not mean that there are already roots. It takes inwortelingsproces after several weeks, first appears on one side a carrot.

If the roots are real throughput you can also cultivate the plant in a sunny place, the protective plastic removed. Keep the soil moisture is still a close eye so that the plant at this stage not been dried or drown.

After the plant has hardened off (= slow just to make the air) may be the grape cuttings rooted without pot planting against a south wall, or after June 1st.
    The result after one growing season will certainly surprise you. The long road of further care and pruning grapes in the garden I would like to explain in a subsequent article. We are looking therefore for the party?
