Product Information

A truly unique and productive plant, this bonsai grape will produce bunches of red grapes year after year in virtually no space at all!

These grapes originate in Sicily, where the old plants were dug up from the commercial fields and potted up - so they feature marvellous thick stems already and have a history of productivity!

Naturally, grape vines are vigorous climbers but when trained into a bonsai form, the Vitis vinifera makes a much more compact shrub with a thick, heavily patterned trunk, with bunches of grapes hanging in decorative clusters.

Grape vines are easy to care for and grow, needing just regular watering and feeding and a sunny position. Best grown outside spring to autumn, before being moved into a cooler room over the winter.

Plants are self-fertile, and the grapes are ready to be picked when ripe in late summer to early autumn - the grapes are not affected in any way by the size of the tree.

To maintain its shape, the grape bonsai should be pruned in early winter with a sharp pair of snips.

Supplied as an established red grape plant in a 15cm pot, plants will grow as tall as you let them, but we recommend keeping them to a maximum 1.4m.

Cut back annually to the woody stem to keep your Bonsai at 1m max to allow for new growth the following year.

Top Tips

Your vine will grow as tall as you let it. Commercially plants are cut back to maximum 1.4m every 2 -3 years  by pollarding to allow easy picking of the grapes. Your plant can be cut back annually to the woody stem to keep Bonsai at 1m max, leaving at least 2 buds per stem to carry the following year's crop of grapes.

Care Information

Care of your red grape bonsai:

  • Keep it outside in either full sun or partial shade.
  • The grapevine bonsai needs between eight and 10 hours of indirect sunlight each day, along with good air circulation.
  • Protect from extreme cold and if brought indoors, plants should be kept out of direct light.
  • Water thoroughly at least every other day, daily if the weather is warm and ensure that the soil never dries out, although don't allow the plant to stand in water.
  • Use a liquid feed every 2 weeks during the growing season.
  • Grapes are deciduous so lose their leaves in winter and you can water less - once a week should be sufficient.
  • Repot the grape bonsai every two or three years. At that time, prune back to root ball.


 

Pruning your Red Bonsai Grape Plant:

  • Plant will put on a lot of growth in spring. Prune back new shoots to prevent them from getting leggy.
  • Prune off any misplaced, suckers and shoots from the base to leave the trunk bare.
  • Prune back to the main frame in autumn, leaving one or two buds for the next season's grapes.
  • Avoid pruning in spring and summer - the main pruning time is late November or December. Pruning later can cause the vine to bleed sap, weakening the plant.
  • Cut roots back to 1/3rd every other year and replant your bonsai in a pot deeper than 3 in filled with free draining soil.
  • As with other bonsai trees, wire may be used to shape branches. Leave the wire in place for up to six months in order to bend the branches in the shape desired.
