Flowering and fruiting vines can be a delight in the garden. They
add a vertical dimension to your landscape and draw your eye up.
Flowering vines can provide a wall of color that very few other
plants can match. The vines listed below provide beauty, fragrance
and interest to your garden and also provide nectar, fruit and shelter
for birds. Plants are shipped bareroot (no
soil or pot) and dormant (no foliage) from early April to mid May.
The vines listed above do best in at least a half day of full sun
in consistently moist, organic soil. Be sure to give your vine a
support to climb on right away or soon after it's planted.
Grapes need a well-drained soil, full sun and lots of heat. Avoid
planting in low spots that are prone to late spring frosts, since
grapes leaf out late in spring. Be sure to give it a support to
climb on right away or soon after it's planted.
And don’t pick the grapes before they’re fully ripe
or you’ll miss out on the best flavor. Watch for the fruit
to turn a darker color and then taste test. Birds love grapes, so
be sure to plant some to share.

What's a "bareroot" plant?
is a term that describes how a plant is shipped to you. A bareroot
plant is not in a pot, and is usually dormant (not actively growing).
See the photo to the right that shows what a bareroot rose looks
like. The bareroot plants that we ship to you were harvested in
the fall and placed in cold storage over the winter to keep them
dormant. In the spring, we ship the bareroot plants to our customers,
from early April through mid May.
Bareroot plants are easy to grow. We include planting instructions
with your order. When you receive your plant, take it out of the
packing material and place it in a bucket of water so that the roots
are completely covered. Let the roots soak for 4 to 24 hours, then
plant it in your garden. Full planting instructions with photos
are available on our planting
