How to Water, Prune, And Fertilize Grape Vine
Plant in soil that drains well. As a deciduous plant, do not provide supplemental water while dormant in the Winter. Prune grape vines during this time to prepare for Spring growth. Begin to water once plants leaf out in the Spring. Irrigate about once per week. Increase the frequency to 2 – 3 times per week as the temperature increases in the Summer. Reduce the irrigation frequency as it cools in the Fall. Grape vines can be affected by fungi such as powdery mildew and rust, so make sure not to keep the soil wet all the time.
Use an organic fungicide such as liqui-cop or horticultural Neem oil to prevent or treat for common fungus like powdery mildew.
Till the top layer of the soil in the Winter and apply some manure along with organic fertilizers before Spring growth. Also fertilize the grape vine in the Spring with a balance organic fruit tree fertilizer with a 1-1-1 or a 2-1-1 NPK ratio, such as (5-5-5)or (6-3-3). Reapply growth formula fertilizer in the Summer. Do not fertilize in the Fall as this the time the tree has slowed growth. Apply a fertilizer with low nitrogen and high phosphorus and potassium with a 1-2-2 or 1-4-4 NPK ratio like a 4-12-12 NPK analysis.
The flowers and future fruit of grape vines on new growth are called canes. Flowers initiate on young canes. Prune every year to keep this growth healthy and rejuvenated yearly.

The two factors that determine if a deciduous fruit trees will grow well and produce fruit in a certain area are the Chill Hour Requirement and the Cold Hardiness. “Chill hours” are the amount of cold a deciduous fruit tree need to produce fruit. This is measured in the number of hours below 45 degrees Fahrenheit a plant must experience during its winter dormancy. Paradise Nursery only grows Low Chill fruit trees that meet the chill requirements of all areas of the United States.
The second factor is Cold Hardiness. Cold Hardiness refers to the minimum temperature a plant can tolerate. The USDA’s Cold Hardiness Zones indicate the average minimum winter temperatures of areas. Based on the shipping zipcode, our website will only allow you to add plants to your cart that grow within your USDA Hardiness Zone, and tolerate your climate.
Pollination & Propagation
(Grafting/Cutting) Most of Paradise Nursery’s edible plants are self-fruitful. Self-pollinating trees do not require an additional tree to produce fruit. For your convenience, we have indicated which trees require a pollinator, and their associated pollinators. Only the sweet cherries, avocados, and some plums require a pollinator. All of our other propagated edible plants do not require a pollinator. All of our edible plants are either grown from cuttings, budded, or grafted. This way, we can ensure that our plants are high quality and fruit immediately. Plants will generally begin fruiting within a year of planting.
