So that vines thrive well, they not only need a sunny spot - they also need to be properly cast. Here's how to do it right.
If you cultivate grapevines in the garden, you will have to expect a lot of care, especially when cutting. As far as watering the plants is concerned, you have far less to do there, at least when the grapevines are already a bit older. For in the beginning, the vines really need a lot of water.
So pour grapevines right
In the beginning it is important that you provide the plants with sufficient water, because they absolutely need it for the formation of strong roots. Only when the rooting is optimal, the grapevine can absorb enough nutrients from the soil and flourish as best as possible. The well-formed roots will also help the plant in the future to cope with dry weather, as it can absorb moisture better.
In order to promote root growth, you should not provide the plants with water daily, but if so with a large amount. So you give as a guideline 10 liters per plant every seven days. Under this scheme, you will proceed for the first six weeks after planting. You should only give up the additional irrigation of the vines, if it has rained heavily.

Vines on a wall or wall:
If you have placed the grapevines on a wall or wall in order to green the house wall, the rainwater can not reach the roots of the plants well. In this case you must water the plants every seven to ten days. Each plant then needs 10 to 20 liters of water.
from the second year:
From the second year the water demand decreases. The plants can now easily cope with dry periods of two to three weeks. The plant "learns" over time, with the water reserves to endure. The vine comes out so well with the natural rainfall. Only in particularly bad periods of drought should you grab your own watering can and pour the grapevines.
