    Default Grapevines looking for a good home

    I have just planted 55 grapevines in my garden and because of minimum ordering levels I have lots left over. I hate to think of them being destroyed. They are all white, early to mid season ripening, grafted onto SO4 rootstock. These are wine grapes varieties: Orion, Phoenix, and Reichensteiner. Sadly
    I cannot post them but if you are in or near Southampton you can pick them up.

    As VC said lovely offer shame to be to far away. Just wanted to add phoenix is a dual purpose grape (eating + wine) so may be more tempting to someone.

    Excellent offer DW unfortunately can't make use of it. Are there any schools or community growing projects in the area that may make use of them.

    How many of them are you making available?

    I have about 25 spare on top of extras I have potted just in case. I have not been in the area for very long so do not know of any local projects who could use them.
