    Oh, that's interesting! I'd never have thought of doing that. I have some thinking to do :P

    If you don't want it in your greenhouse, they can get huge, plant it against a south facing wall. They have a big root run.

    BTW where are you?

    I'm in Wiltshire and I have a grape on a South facing wall. I usually get too many grapes to use them all.

    That's promising! Do you have it in a pot by a south facing wall or in the earth by a south facing wall?

    Whatever you decide Wild, it would be better in the ground. It will split a pot in no time.
