Grape Bush for UK Climates
- Vitis Grape 'Dornfelder' produces good sized, blue-black grapes which ripen well in the UK.
- When grown outdoors they prefer a sheltered spot in a south facing location and have a climbing habit by their very nature. They can also be grown in a greenhouse.
- They are excellent for the amateur wine producers amongst us and once cropping has finished the autumn coloured foliage is a real ornamental treat.
- They arrive ready to plant in a 9cm pot.
Can grow up to 3.5 m in the right conditions.
