grape vine looking bad
« on: May 15, 2010, 22:26 »
ive got two grape vines on my plot spaced about 3 ft apart.Today i've noticed a lot of the leaves on both plants are looking very dry,curled up & dark. Any ideas what this might be& what to do to remedy it?
 Cheers

The sun may always shine where you are but the frost has obviously got your leaves. Give them a bit of water and some fleece until you're positive all frost has finished, which could be another few weeks the way things are going in the UK.

Might well be the frost has burnt them. Some shoots IN my greenhouse got frosted last week, most unusual.

They should grow back though, but you will get less fruit than normal. Grapes are great survivors. If the first bud gets frosted they will produce another and not so much fruit, if they get frosted twice, a third shoot will grow, but be prepared for almost no fruit. If there is a fourth frost it might well be curtains for the plant!!
I was put on this earth to accomplish a certain number of things; right now I am so far behind I will never die.

Definitely frost.  My blackberries have also got dark leaves - and they are very hardy :wacko:  However, with a bit of TLC, they should come back :ohmy:
