Product Description

Review

Two Royal Horticultural Society experts offer all the advice you need to produce your own grape harvest - dessert grapes or for wine. Vitis vinifera has been grown in Britain since their introduction by the Romans but only today are English wines gradually gaining a foothold in the universal world of wine. Maybe it is global warming, maybe it is centuries of experience but today the wines produced in Kent are known across the Channel, featuring on wine lists in top hotels and restaurants. Difficult? Yes, and prone to several pests and diseases, but with a little care and attention it is more than possible to grow your own. In cooler counties in a greenhouse but down South outside is perfectly feasible. From what varieties to choose, which method to grow them on and where, Harry Baker and Ray Waite lead both the uninitiated and the more experienced grower through the steps necessary to get the best out of your vine. Part of the RHS Wisley handbook series, this is a comprehensive and concise look at grapes, fully illustrated and clearly written. Aimed at both the amateur and professional grower, this is an invaluable addition to any serious horticulturalist's bookshelf. - Lucy Watson

A great book, a lot of good information about growing grapes in the UK, although mostly table grapes in greenhouses. The varieties recommended for in a greenhouse are good, although ones for outdoor cultivation aren't anything special, there are better ones.
Overall it is well written and one of the few books that will provide you with UK-specific information on growing grapes. Many varieties that are early in other countries are late or just won't succeed here, so a book about cultivating grapes in the UK and which varieties will produce here is very welcome.

A great book for a beginner which covers all the basics. Doesn't go into too much detail but in a 100page paperback you wouldn't expect that.
