: I recently purchased a house with an old grape arbor
: at the back of the property, in full sun. The arbor
: posts have rotted at ground level and were threaded with
: heavy wire cabel, which is quite rusted now, to support
: the vines. The off-shots are alive; some of the original
: vines are as thick as young trees and cracked in a few
: places; however, the cracks seem to have healed over.
: I want to try to bring this back. The old vines are
: very heavy and lying on the ground. Should I try to
: raise them? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Congratulations on your new home! I don't know much about grapes, but I don't see why you shouldn't be able to revive the grapes. These folks should be able to help.
You'll need to know your hardiness zone.
