When we moved to our home on the Braden River in 2012, we re-worked the yard & planted grapevines with help from Ann Hall Designs. It came out really great, we are so pleased. This is the 5th season for our grapevines, planted in 2013 -hard to believe!
The vines need to be cut back when they are dormant, January - February. In March they need to be watered, to encourage new growth. Last year was a very dry spring & I did not know about watering them, especially at that time. The new growth was very delayed. So this year I have been tending to them after learning this. Look . . . I was rewarded!
So exciting! Yes, those are teeny tiny grapes at the top.
I am also tending to climbing jasmine that we planted around the same time. Last year I added another small Jasmine plant to join the first one. They are both blooming now & so fragrant!
When the grapevines fill in and the jasmine grows the Pergola will be covered with leaves. The photo below was taken last July - yikes!!
