Acquired a Grape vine late last year, a find of a lifetime for me, there was a wine exhibition in a very large supermarket here in france, I was just passing through and spotted it on a pillar of wine cartons. I had to have it, went to see the salesperson and they said they couldn’t sell it until the wine show was over maybe 2 week. I reserved it and they put my name on it.
Finally I got to go and pick it up. Well my wife did, HUMMMMM she gets there and collects the vine, takes it to the car, the car isn’t big enough, in effect when the tree was up high you couldn’t really tell the real size, when it was down it was absolutely huge. she took it back in and the next day I went with the van to collect it.
Once home quick look over her watered and trimmed dead stuff off.
Its been in the same its pot for i don’t know how long and would like to transition it into something maybe just a box to push it forward.
this is the tree as it is now just, it’s just starting to push buds.
My questions are what is the best time for repotting grape vines and what would be the best substrate to use.
I was thinking 100% acadama but not sure if it would be to water retentive.
I hope my little story doesn’t bore you to much !!
Thanks in advance.
