Product Description

Author and long-time grape grower Lon Rombough provides all the information you need to succeed with grapes: from siting your vineyard to pruning and training; from improving your soil to revitalizing an old neglected grapevine; from greenhouse growing to breeding your own unique varieties.  Along the way he emphasizes organically approved methods, including products and techniques for controlling pests and disease.  There's even information of North American grapes and on the many hybrid grapes that have been developed from them.  Complete descriptions of hundreds of grape varieties let you chose the ones that will perform best in your region, including bunch grapes and muscadines for humid, southern climates.
