Growing Grape Vines in Containers
I'd really like to grow a muscadine grape vine, but my in-ground space is limited. Therefore, I've been researching methods for growing them in containers. Here's a suggested training method for grapes in containers that's recommended in Rodale's Illustrated Encyclopeda of Organic Gardening:
Train a single trunk up a 4' stake, at the top of which you've attached in inverted wire frame hanging basket (or small spoked wheel, etc.). Prune the trunk at the top of the stake, and then train cordons to fan out and drape over the top of the basket. This creates a sort of weeping shape.
Has anyone tried anything similar to this, particularly with a muscadine variety? Or does anyone have any general advice for growing/training grape vines in containers?
