VITIS vinifera GRAPE VINE Boskoop Glory 3L

A reliable outdoor cropping variety bred in Holland, Boskoop Glory is easy to grow and a reliable cropper.  Often mistakenly sold as a wine grape, however according to experts, it is one of the best edible grapes that can be grown in the UK.  The grapes are small-medium in size with a wonderfully sweet flavour and virtually seedless.  Well worth growing for its stunning autumn foliage and although it is completely hardy it will also do well grown in a conservatory or greenhouse.  Requires a site with well drained soil and full sun.  Eventual height: 12m (39ft).  Eventual spread: 2½-4m (8-13ft). Cropping season: October.  Self fertile.

This plant is supplied in a 3L pot.

Planting:

Water thoroughly or stand in a container of water for an hour before planting.  Plant in a hole large enough to avoid disturbing the root ball.  Plant 6 inches (15cm) away from a wall, preferably south facing, in a hole 4-6 inches (10-15cm) deep.  Leave 4-5 feet between plants.  Good drainage is vital.  Tie lightly to a stake for the first month before attaching it to the wall/fence it is to be trained up.

After Care:

In the first Spring after planting, choose one shoot to be the leader and train.  Any lateral produced from the leading shoot, should be stopped at 5 or 6 leaves, and any flowers or tendrils should be removed.  Mulch yearly with well rotted compost of manure to retain moisture and suppress weeds.  Water regularly until established.  Apply a general fertiliser.
