I had ordered two of these from Burpee last spring and the deer kept them eaten off as fast as they grew, I even caged them and they still killed them out. I ordered from you this time because you were cheaper and I know that Start Bro's always send a good product.

what kind of trellis would work best for the neptune seedless grapes?
Heather on Feb 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Neptune vines grow very fast, spread wide, and have large diameter branches. They need lots of room to grow, and a sturdy trellis to support them. I use 16 foot long cattle panels that are 50 inches tall, connected with 'T' posts. The wire on the panels is close to the thickness of a pencil, so there is plenty of support with no need to beef it up later when the vines grow out of control. I would keep the vines at a MINIMUM of 10 feet apart. Even at that spacing, by year two and beyond you will have to be vigilant to keep them trimmed back. I have 12 varieties of grapes, and the Neptunes by far outgrow the rest. Good luck!

Cathy S on Feb 19, 2016

I hope ,my answer is correct
Best wishes

what other grape needs to be planted with Neptune?
kathleen m on Mar 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They are self pollinating so you shouldn???t have too use any other kind. I planted two plants but both died because of my soil. Too much clay.
I am a total newbie. I want to try growing some grapes, i have a 5ft high chain link fence that i was hoping to plant them up against. Could i use that as the basis for an initial trellis and then add additional support as needed? if so how and what would you suggest i add or how. Money is a factor. Thank you.
Troy D on Oct 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We are new to grapes as well, but we learned a lot the hard way. I don't recommend a chain link fence, as once even a young grape vine gets hold, it will not let go. A 2-foot vine latched onto some temporary fencing, and it was easier to cut the fence down with heavy wire cutters than try to cut the strong-as-iron grape tendrils!

Your permanent trellis must be seriously heavy and strong, or your vine will ultimately destroy it. We designed and built our own really simple pergola with 4x4 cedar posts and cedar 2x4s for the top. Super-solid, and cedar lasts for the decades your vine will be there. You could initially get away with a flimsy pole for the first year, but it would definitely have to be replaced by something strong by the next season or so.
Does this grow well in clay soil?
Harold C on Feb 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Concords grow well here in Mid-Missouri with lots of clay soil. I have grown both seeded and seedless concords all my life (I'm 77). Get a soil test unless you know the soil has balanced nutrients. I always work in some compost about one month before planting and mulch the plants with woodchips and compost each year. Also fertilize; I use 13-13-13 sprinkled around the drip line, about 1 pound per plant.

When is the best time to plant?
Ronald W on Sep 2, 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!
I have a Neptune grape, and a Reliance grape. Both seedless. So far my Neptune grapes though not fully ripe are full of seeds. My Reliance have not fruited theyre first 2 yrs yet. Why do the seedless have seeds? We have no other grape vines on our property.
Jade D on Aug 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Nearly all grapevines in production today produce seedless grapes. It turns out that most fruits today do not come from seeds.They are grown from the cuttings of the plant ... Seedless grapes actually do contain seeds at some point. But a genetic error prevents the seeds from forming hard outer coats like normal seeds do. The older the vine the less seeds it will produce eventually bearing almost seedless varieties.
How long will the vines grow?
txr03447 on Jul 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: After about 20 years vines start to produce smaller crops, and average yields decrease, leading to more concentrated, intense wines. Diseases such as "dead arm" can also afflict old vines, in some cases further concentrating the juice.
How tall is the plant when it is shipped?
Sue A on Jul 18, 2020
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. Our grapes will typically take 2-3 years after planting to reach maturity and bear fruit.
I am thinking of growing this in a pot in front of my house so that they can grow up the side. How big should my pot be, and how wide will these vines get? My house has about 10 ft. of usable space, so how many plants can I buy?
TheShadyGarden on Jun 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You can grow almost anything in a container! This excellent article will answer your questions and provide good advice. Please see "Growing Fruit Trees in Containers" //www.starkbros.com/growing-guide/article/fruit-trees-in-containers-pt1

What would be the pollinator for the Neptune grape vine?
Brandy M on Mar 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Neptune is self-pollinating, but for more/larger fruit, another seedless variety like Gratitude would be an excellent production booster.
Can concord seedless and Neptune seedless be planted close together?
Larry M on Jul 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but they do spread and you don't need many to keep you in a good supply
How many plants for a 4' x 8' raised bed?
Rae P on Aug 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That is a rather small bed for multiple grape vines, but if you're willing to stay on top of pruning them, it should work. While this is a little closer than what we normally recommend (which is 6-8' apart), you could probably get away with planting either two Neptunes (or a Neptune and another seedless variety for more/bigger clusters on both vines) about 5' apart (1-1/2' from the end of each long side).
What size will the vine (Bare Root) be when it arrives at my home?
Dyrles on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The age and size information for our bare-root grapes is as follows: 1 year old and 12-18??? tall. Our grapes will typically take 2-3 years after planting to reach maturity and bear fruit.
How's it done without any seeds?
Frank T on Oct 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The vine is grafted, as are most all of our plants and trees. That ensures that the true parentage of the variety is what you get.
Would you recommend cane or spur pruning for this grape? Thank you
22sky@live.com D on Oct 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Because it's an American hybrid, we recommend cane pruning, which help lower disease probability.

So far, so good. They look healthy and have tiny clusters of grapes. I wasn't sure when I saw my complete order come bare root. Didn't look like much but everything without exception has taken off and is doing great.
