Grape plant mix up

poolecw(Georgia 7b)July 9, 2013

I ordered 6 Concords and 3 scuppernongs from Ty Ty nursery back in the early spring. They were bundled and labeled when I recieved them in the mail. I planted the concords on one trellis and the scuppernongs on a seperate trellis. Now that they are growing well, I have noticed that the plants look to be mixed up. There is one plant on my scppernong trellis that looks completely different from the other ones. Also, there are two plants on my concord trellis that looks a lot like the scuppernongs.

if my suspicions are correct, should I transplant them now or should I wait till early spring when they are dorment? I am trying to train them now and really would rather replant them in their correct location now but don't want to potentially harm them.

The picture shown is of the plant that was supposed to to be a scuppornong but it looks more like a concord to me....

Transplanting now will be a difficult proposition. If you do they will be lucky to survive and probably won't grow much more this summer. If they quit growing they really can't be trained.

Next spring as early as possible will allow much better odds of survival.

Looks like you have a light case of mildew by the way

Wait to transplant until they are dormant. Ty Ty isn't the sharpest pencil in the box........., or a brick short of a load? They mess up a lot!!

Good luck, but wait until they are dormant. You can prune, take cuttings and propagate more.

Thanks for the input everyone. I will wait until early spring to transplant them to their correct trellis.

This is my first year dealing with grape vines so I hadn't picked up on the mildew. But now that you mention it, I can see it on most of my young plants. Do you have a fungicide that you would recommend?

As for Ty Ty, I have learned my lesson. I bought blueberries, grapes, and a mulberry tree from them back in the spring and I have not been satisfied with anything from them. Being from Georgia as well, I have always heard their advertisements. So I didn't really think much about researching them. Big mistake, I see tons of bad reviews on them now that I am looking....
