Sometime back, I bought a grafted grapevine from FEF. I was told to put to partial shade.. The leaves turned yellow. I moved to the sun the leaves and vines dried up and drop off totally. I moved back to shade even tho it was barren hoping that it will revived, but the main stem shriveled up. I decided to uproot it then. But before I threw, I examined the plant and found this branch to be green beneath the brown bark. So I tried my luck again. Voila... This baby came back!

But this is not grafted anymore... I know it is not easy to grow grapes in our climate. So I would really appreciate any tips from the experience growers to help me keep this growing... PLEASSEEEE!

it is still consider as grafted as not seed grown. You have to change it to a well drained mix.

Keep me informed as I once grew a grapevine in Penang Malaysia it grew very tall but did not fruit and died after about one year.
Grape vines usually die back in the winter, where they are pruned back to a more suitable size, and then come alive in the spring with new leaves and bunches of baby grapes and so the cycle grows.
I grow grapes in Brisbane which are a tropical variety, but still go through a die back phase each year.
So you may be pulling up a grape vine plant that is going through a dormant phase, and not dead at all.

Can I know where did you get yours that the people there will know if it is a sweet variety? The place where I bought mine have no idea what grapes it was. I'm thinking of getting a pot for my community garden.

Not recommend for a community garden as it is too much work to start with . Well drain and fertile soil .

mosses, is the leaf shape of your plant from WF that produces sour grapes similar to the leaf on the left? Is the leaf shape of your sweet grape variety similar to the leaf on the right? Thanks.
