GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Can grapes be grown in containers? Yes, they can.
  • In fact, the care of container-grown grapes isn’t at all complicated.
  • There are, however, a few things you need to know beforehand to make growing a grapevine in a pot an easier, more successful endeavor.
  • Growing a grapevine in a pot requires some specific materials.
  • First, you need to pick your container.
  • Black or dark-colored plastic pots heat up in the sun and can cause your grapevine’s roots to get too hot.
  • Wooden containers are a good alternative.
  • If you have to use dark plastic, try to arrange your container so that it stays in the shade but your vine is in the sun.
  • Your container should also be a minimum of 15 gallons (57L).
  • The next thing you need is a good trellis.
  • This can be any shape or material you like, as long as it’s strong and will last.
  • As your grapevine grows (and it will grow for many years), it will have to hold up a lot of material.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Put stones or styrofoam in the bottom of your container for drainage, then add soil and a layer of mulch.
  • Grapes will grow in nearly any type of soil, but they prefer moist silt loam.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • They need virtually no fertilizer, but if you choose to feed them, use a fertilizer low in nitrogen.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • For most grapevines, give them about seven hours of sunlight per day.
  • This ensures leaves and grapes on all sides of the plant get sun part of the day, as the sun moves across the sky.
  • It also gives the plant time to absorb enough nutrients from the sun to develop a healthy crop of grapes.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water should be sufficient to wet the soil 6 to 10 inches beneath the surface, but deeper watering can cause root rot.
