Growing 'Lakemont' Grapevines

Full sun is essential if you plan to harvest the fruit, but a little shade is fine otherwise. The microclimate beside a warm, sunny wall is ideal. Fertile, well-drained but moist alkaline to neutral soil.

It will need a framework, trellis or wire support, quickly growing to fill a space 8m x 2.5m. It can be pruned in mid-winter to create a framework and again in mid-summer if required.

In Your Garden Design

Vines provide great cover, draped over pergolas, arbours and other ornamental frameworks and are a natural for Mediterranean style gardens. They provide excellent summer shade over eating areas, with the bunches of grapes can hanging down overhead attractively.

You can intersperse other climbers through them but they make a fabulous feature on their own. Instead you can associate them nicely with other shrubs displaying good autumn colour such as Cotinus coggygria. Other good pairings are with roses as they generally have the same sun and shade requirements. In greenhouses, ideal companions are herbs such as basil and hyssop.
