This very hardy variety can be grown indoors or out where they will be happiest in a sunny position with well drained soil. The vines produce tasty red eating grapes and turn a stunning colour in the autumn.
Current Description
We're very excited to have some more new varieties of grapevines to add to our collection. These Suffolk Red vines are 3 year old grafted plants, and we expect them to produce their first good crop of fruit next year. This year they will quickly put on lots of vibrant fresh foliage and the odd grape or 2. Currently growing on here at our nursery they will be ready for sale at the end of June when they should have their first fresh foliage of the season as in the main photo. If you'd like a gift sooner, we have some other super varieties ready for immediate despatch and you can find out more about them here.

Care Instrictions

Grape Vines are surprisingly well suited to the UK climate. In the right spot they are vigorous growers and can produce heavy crops of fruit in September and October.

Your grapevine will do well in a sunny or partially shaded spot but do make sure that it is sheltered. Grapevines need to be protected from cold winds and will put on fresh and vigorous leaf growth in the spring. Suffolk Red vines are a fairly hardy variety that can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but they dislike very chalky soil.

Ideally your grapevine should be transplanted shortly after arrival either into a larger pot or barrel or into the ground. Grapevines can be planted at almost any time of year as long as the ground is frost free. Before planting, submerge the pot in a bucket of water for 10 minutes and add a top dressing of seaweed feed or fish, blood and bone to help it get settled in. If you want to keep your vine in its existing pot for a little longer for whatever reason, it will need regular watering, and will appreciate some ordinary liquid feed.

To get the best fruit from your grapevine, you will need to start pruning it next year. The results are well worth the effort!

Problem solving Mildew is the greatest problem with and is caused by prolonged damp conditions or by irregular watering, if your plant is in a pot try moving it to a sunnier position and always train it to encourage airflow round each branch.

Grapevines are deciduous and Suffolk Red’s leaves turn a gorgeous red in the autumn before falling Different varieties are better suited to wine making or eating but don't forget the more sunshine the fruits receive the sweeter the grapes will taste.
