Grafting muscadine grape vine
« on: June 02, 2022, 06:34:42 PM »
I have Supreme Ison and delicious muscadine grapes. I would like to plant another one that is female but it will be too far away from the others for them to be pollinators. I have limited space and this variety is a female could I graft a pollinator onto?

Muscadines are difficult to graft. It can be done,  though. The best success I have heard people have is with approach grafting. I would just buy 2 vines and plant them in the same hole. Each vine can become an arm. You will get the same effect with a lot less work. The vines ground layer incredibly easily, by the way. If you bury part of the vine in moist sand it will naturally form roots in just a few weeks during the summer.

That sounds like a plan. I actually ordered another Ison because a turtle dug it up and I didn't notice for several days and it appeared dead but I replanted it just a little deeper then hit it with the water and it is coming back now. I didn't know what I was going to do with the second Ison but now I do I'll plan it in the same hole as the Big Red. While I was focused on muscadines a friend gifted me a interesting new variety called delicious :)



Finding many uses and benefits from these growth tubes I ordered for the grape Vines



And these fellows have been doing a lot of digging looking for turtle eggs




I'm actually having a very good year for Lychee and mangoes with the advice and wisdom of friends
