Transplanting Champanel Grapes--Help
I have been given several 3 year old Champanel grapevines. They were well cared for since they were originally planted but now need to be moved. I know how to plant grapevines when they come from Lowes :) but this is new to me. I put all the plants in a very large pot and covered the roots with soil. I have kept them moist. They were dug a few days ago and will go into their new homes on Saturday. I have prepared raised beds and think I am pretty good to go on soil, compost, etc. BUT do I trim the roots back and if so, how severely? Or plant them as they are? And should I trim the vines? And once I do plant them is there something besides water I should give them to give them a little push? I am not expecting them to recover enough to get grapes this year. I simply want to give them a good start and hopefully they will survive and become productive in the future. Any advice at all is appreciated. thank you.
