Plant your own table grapes
One of life’s pleasures is to pick big
juicy table grapes straight off the vine
and taste the sun together with the
sweet, juicy burst of flavour.
Another of life’s pleasures is when
you get home from a hot day’s work in
summer, go to the fridge and grab an
icy cold bunch of luscious grapes, just
like nature’s lollies!
Barossa Nursery has a huge range
of bare root table grape vines available
now. One consideration if planting more
than one vine, is to plant early season,
mid season and late season table grape
vines, so you can extend your time of
enjoyment of grapes.
Here is a selection of good early

“Let’s ask Erica”, c/- Barossa Nursery,
Barossa Valley Way, P.O. Box 348,
A lot of my plants have been burnt by the
frost. When can I cut them back?
Answer: It is so tempting to trim off the burnt
tips, but resist! Wait till the danger of frosts are
over, probably around mid-September.
If you cut back now and we have more heavy
frosts, the newly exposed tips will burn back
Cut things back early Spring, fertilise them
and they will take off.
My mother-in-law and I have a difference in
opinion. She says you should always tease out
the roots and I don’t think you should. She says
she has never lost a plant, but I’m still unsure?
Answer: She has been very, very lucky to date.
Here at Barossa Nursery, we never recommend
teasing out roots, especially for Australian
Teasing out roots is really 1960’s thinking,
when plants were more often than not overgrown
and planted in garden soil, not potting soil.
Most growers’ plastic pots now have vertical
indentations to discourage roots from circling
in the pot.
If you have a plant which is seriously pot
bound, it is less invasive to cut vertical wedges
in the root ball, out of which, roots will grow to
anchor the plant, than to tease out roots.
Watering in with a Seasol solution will help
against transplant shock and encourage new
