Keeping grape vines in containers temporarily
I have a major backyard renovation going and I jumped the gun a bit and ordered three different grape vines.
I have so much going on Im not sure if I can get them planted in the ground for another month or so. Problem is its spring and I would like them to get as much growth this year as possible so they are quicker to get established and ultimately, quicker to produce fruit.
I have a trellis/arbor system planned out but wont be able to work on it for a month or so. The grape vines are very small as of now, can I plant them in 5 gallon buckets for the time being so that they can still develop root structure and growth, and then transplant them in the ground once I know where they will be permenantly located?
Is there any downfall to doing this that Im not aware of? I need to let them develop shoots anyway to select a permanent trunk so this might allow them to grow while Im getting things planned out.
Its possible I could plan out their permanent planting locations in the next week or so if I really had to, if it would be greatly more beneficial or something but if possible and it wouldnt stunt them that much Ild prefer to keep them in buckets.
