Vitis Vinifera Purpurea, also known as Tenturier Grape, and recipient of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, a hardy, ornamental, deciduous fast growing climbing vine, the fresh green, flushed burgundy foliage emerging in Spring, getting progressively darker with age through the Summer and becoming crimson tinged towards the Autumn, a spectacularly colourful addition to any garden. Small insignificant flowers are formed late Spring followed by compact clusters of edible burgundy coloured grapes.
Looking After Your Vitis Vinifera Purpurea
Vitis or grape vines are best planted in Winter during the dormant season in a well dug free draining soil and sunny or partially shaded position, the sunnier the aspect the better the grapes mature. After planting remove all the flowers/fruit for the first two years, this will allow a good root system to establish, then allow three bunches of grapes to mature in the third year, there after allow to produce freely, feed regularly using a suitable fertilizer such as liquid tomato feed. Any pruning required is best achieved during Winter whilst still dormant.
