Grape Vine Growing
My grapes come in beautifully every year, but seem to fall off and shrivel before they are even ripe. What do i need to do?
It is very important that you water your grape vine plants very well during spring and summer, especially in dry areas or long spells of dry weather. Stop watering grapevines when the fruit starts to change color. This will encourage the ripening process.
Also critical is that you prune your grape vines. If you allow the plants to produce too much fruit they won't be able to develop them properly. They have to be thinned out.
