Impressive. How tall was the cutting you rooted? My Negronne is getting tall and I was thinking of taking the leader out of it next season but am not sure if I can get it to root like newer growth.

Your VdB looks great! I'm very jealous. I have a much smaller Vdb (2 years old) but it was VERY productive this year for its size. I have a pic of it on my blog below if you are interested. Keep up the great growing.

Here is a link that might be useful: .09 Acres

Hi Vaplantman,
you will forget you say jealous next season with your Vdb .
With a little care you will see how nice size yours will be next season in your climate. ; )
By the way i visit your site - nice and thanks.
