Bare root mature vines ready for shipment Here is an illustration of two own root, (i.e. ungrafted) vines pruned ready for shipment. On the left is a one-year old and on the right a mature vine. Both types should be allowed a year to re-establish the root system which is pruned for shipment. Note that mature vines loose most of their feeding roots during lifting so they are best planted in November with mycorrhizal fungi applied to the roots to stimulate feeding root regrowth.
In the spring, new growth should appear at several points on the head of the plant. Only those shoots required for the framework should be allowed to develop.
These are available on this page.

This page contains vines that have been grown - and in many cases harvested - but are now surplus to requirements due to ‘permanent reorganisations’ as a result of new trials. Note that when lifting mature vines there is always a risk of root damage; typically a whole root will pull off the stem but this should not cause a failure. It is prudent to allow a mature vine one year’s growth in its new position before taking a crop. Plants are soaked overnight to reduce the risk of drying out during shipment but on receipt should be soaked again and planted or at least heeled-in and watered as soon as possible.
