I planted the grape vine shortly after I received it last year. Since it did not show any signs of life after several weeks, I called and was advised to dig around the plant in order to shock it out of dormancy which I did. Soon, it sprouted leaves. This year, however, it shows no sign of life again and again I dug around it with no result. What do you think is wrong?
Richard G on Jun 9, 2016

it was dead.....2 weeks ago it started to grow....1 stem is 2 ft.long....You never know with Mother Nature!

Can we buy a 5 year old vine?
Richard on Nov 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The age and size information for our grapes is as follows: 4??? pot: 6-12 months old and 4??? tall bare root: 1 year old and 12-18??? tall. The roots on a five-year-old vine would be far too developed to dig and sell as bare-root, and would require far too large a pot.

Our grapes will typically take 2-3 years after planting to reach maturity and bear fruit. You'll be harvesting grapes before you know it!
I bought a property last year that had a couple of grape vines. These vines have been neglected for years and have black rot and possibly other issues. I would estimate the vines to be over 10 years old, and haven't been pruned for years. What recommendations do you have for starting over with these vines? I am not afraid to prune them back and wait for fruit, I just want to make the vines healthy and productive again. Thanks!
Mary H on Aug 1, 2018
Can I get a little older plant ? 3-4 year old
Jackie L on Oct 27, 2019

Are all concord grapes the same?
Nature's Cradle on Jul 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: In a sense yes. The Thomcord variety is a hybrid and the seedless is different in that it has no seeds. To answer your question though anytime you hybridize you change some of the original characteristics. If you want just plain old fashioned Concord then order just that one.
can I eat the grape leaves or are they sprayed im trying to make dolma?
Adrew on May 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn???t eat the leaves that are shipped with it. But once you have planted it and the vine is growing the leaf health is in your hands. If you want to eat the leaves only spray them with something organic. I use dawn dishwashing liquid diluted in water, same thing I use for my roses to prevent aphids.
I am considering ordering concord grape vines. Can they be planted now, or should it wait until spring?
Ray on Jul 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees:
1) when the ground is not frozen.
2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32??F) and below 90??F.
3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
What are the growing years expectancy for concord grapes?
Arlene R on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As long as the Concord variety is recommended for your area, a healthy vine with proper care and regular maintenance can live and produce for as many as 50 years or more!
Could I plant different kinds of grape vines together?
MaryJo L on Apr 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes. But if you plant grapes where the grapes (the fruit) look similar, and the
vines intertwine, you could have a bit of trouble knowing which kind you are harvesting.

what is the best Concord grape plant for zone 4a and 4b?
Em S on Nov 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I planted a Concord grape two years ago (only know of one Concord
grape variety.) It took the first year to get established and grew about eight inches but this year it grew about 18 inches up to the arbor I have for it. We live in central western PA and are usually considered in zone 4. The vine looked great this summer and is outperforming the red seedless I planted the same time. Concords are really hardy once they get established and the only thing most people have issues w/is not trimming hard enough once the vine starts to grow. Good luck woth yours.
We will have trellis. can we plant concord grape with another variety at the same trellis ?
Nannie ATF on Sep 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can have another variety on the same trellis. Just make sure you leave enough space for both vines to grow into, without getting mixed up with each other. I recommend that each vine has a total space of at least 12 feet to grow in (6 feet on both sides of the vine). You can plant in smaller spaces, but it will mean a lot more work with pruning to keep them from growing out of control.
When would the concord grapes ripen here in zone 9B?
Walter P on Feb 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your inquiry! The grapes should ripen late August to early September in Zone 9B.
how often do i water?
Dane-m C on Apr 3, 2021
BEST ANSWER: If summer brings about an inch of rainfall every 10 days or so, you won???t need to use the hose. But if it gets really dry, you can give your new plant a good, thorough soaking. The best way to do this is to let your garden hose trickle slowly. This gives the water a chance to soak in instead of running off. You can also use a soaker hose to water several plants at once.
It???s important to note that even if you???re in the midst of a brown-lawn drought, you don???t want to water too much. Once every 10 days or two weeks is plenty. Worse than dry, thirsty roots is waterlogged, drowning roots.
will my plant ship according to my zone?
Kirk G on Feb 28, 2021
BEST ANSWER: Your order will ship in the time frame in which the USDA opens the zone for shipping You know our weather patterns better than anyone. If you would like us to ship your order at a different time, please contact our Customer Support Team at 800.325.4180. We would be glad to help you arrange what suits you and your growing zone best.

A Greenhorn with His Grapes
Without experience or expectation, my whimsical thought to plant grapes in the yard of my suburban city home was incongruous with my lack of gardening/farming skill or long-term interest. Still, I did it. Well into retirement age, the project was a whim. A reader here should correctly assume that grapes I planted did not get caring attention. That would be correct. I did, however, do a couple of positive things related to the process. First, I called my local agriculture extension office and asked about the suitability for growing grapes and got a solid thumbs up. I chose to put Concord grapes (with seeds) into he ground, because that’s what Mom did too many, many years ago and she used them to make jelly I like. I found Stark Brothers online. I ordered two plants and when they came I did as their online instructions suggested - dig holes eight feet apart and with lots of elbow room in a sunny spot, and then mix in compost (credit: my wife made it), sand, and mulch. Things I did not do, include putting in a good trellis structure (I only have a four steel posts with multiple wire strands strung between them) and I did not leave much space for expanding in the future. Other than watering regularly, I pretty much walked away. The two plants were planted in May (2015) and they did the rest, growing and entwining themselves along my wires. As expected, there were no grapes or signs of grapes last year, their first growing season. In February (2016) I pruned them back, because the Stark Brothers instructions said to do it. I had no idea where to cut, but just did. Afraid to lose all the good growth I had accumulated last year, I probably did not get rid of enough, but that seems consistent with my overall approach. Shortly after, when freezing ended, shoots pushed out in all sorts of directions (yes, untrained) and they were and are covered with little clusters, which look like grapes! Amazing! In spite of how they have been treated, they are trying to produce for me. Life is tenacious and very powerful. It finds a way to thrive. This year I have found there are a few people in my neighborhood who also are growing grapes. Now we stand and compare notes on our experiences, though I am embarrassed by my failure to build a proper growing structure and failure to prune properly. Who knew there was a social benefit from grapes, other than wine? And now I want to plant more and am disappointed to not have space for it. Maybe I should get through this harvest first - September, I think.

How easy is this! And if not, then Stark Brothers details every aspect of the process with volumes of online support information.

Stark Bro's Concord Grapes are grear
I purchased the stark brothers Concorde grapes a a year ago. I followed the recommended planting instructions – and now those grapes are 6 to 8 feet tall as they grow up the trellis. The plants came with an excellent rootstock. The grapes join my other Stark brother plantings of apple and pear trees, BlackBerries, and strawberry. I continue to receive excellent service, excellent products, and excellent results with all of the stark brothers purchases.

Fruited the first year! :)
I sent a very large well rooted dormant bare root plant that's I planted in March of 2016. The first year it put out three vines that grew out to be 10 feet each long with several lateral branches. Also two small bunches of grapes formed which were very tasty with seeds and the trademark slip skin. The vines overwintered well and this year has a lot of growth and flower buds.

I planted the concord grape vines last summer and have not yet had any grapes, but the vines seem robust and healthy. I was told they did not need a trellis because they grow into a bush, but that has not been the case. They do need a trellis.
