Purchasing Cold Weather grape vines

Postby Macker » Mon Oct 30, 2006 9:58 pm

Greetings!

I purchased some cold weather grape vines this past year, and had some success getting them going. I want to add to my vineyard, and instead of going back to my original supplier (long story, lost some vines, and had issues with timely shipping) I want to check other sources. I am in North Central Montana.

Here are the varieties I have:

Frontenac
Marechal Foch
Sabrevois
St. Croix
Prairie Star

Thanks!

These folks are pretty close to Buffalo, so their grapes know crap weather. I've ordered from here and they are a class act.

These people are great. Vine material grown in Central NY. Big Hearty plants. I've had some problems with double A nursery....or rakvineyards.

I also grow cold weather Frontenac grapes. If you are running a commercial business I suspect that you should be buying vines to add to your vineyard. Some of these vines are patented. If you have a hobby vineyard and not selling grapes, wine or vines, bend a vine from a grape vine over, place it in the ground leaving the root i.e. main vine attached. The next spring you will have another grape vine. Bend numerous vines over and bury them and you can start another complete vineyard in a year. Using one area of your vineyard for propagation works very well to increase the size.
