Oh, what bundles of joy grapes can be! Eaten fresh, dried into sultanas or frozen and blended into a refreshing icy drink, they’re the perfect summer-time snack. And they’re quite easy to grow too, provided you have the space. Grapes grow on long-lived vines, which require strong support to grow up and long, like a trellis or pergola. They can grow up to 4m tall and wide, so ensure you give them plenty of room. Look after them well and they’ll reward you with fruit after 3 years.
Grapes are usually picked from mid to late summer through to late autumn
