Yamadori Muscadine Grape Vine
« on: March 09, 2015, 07:36 PM »
Hi everyone. I've had my eye on this M.grape vine since last summer.  All the  researching I did made me think twice about collecting it.

When I was collecting the vine I noticed there were three more covered in leaf litter. There is one more that has feeder roots close to the trunk. This vines roots all grew laterally but is was a mother to collect. The ground is full of different kinds of vines.

Thank you Wayne. I breifly looked at the link on my lunch break .But I will check it out  better after work. All my research led me to believe that they are finicky about losing roots . Al shut that down quick.lol again thanks I am not so worried now.

I would remove the strait section of wood right away, then let it grow one season before doing more. It sould back bud in many places, getting rid of the straightest section will let the grape do its budding in the areas you will want to possibly use in the future.

I made a cutting out of a 4 inch diameter section of wild grape, probably V. riparia, it did a little back budding last summer, only out on the boring straight parts I was thinking I should have cut off. If it survived our brutal winter, I will have to work a couple extra years to get growth in the more interesting parts of the trunk. I wish I had chopped back harder right away in the beginning. So that is why I suggest getting rid or seriously shortening the one really straight trunk.

Thanks Leo ,I am definately going to take your advice  I will cut it today. I wasn't sure if it would dieback. My virginia creepers die back alot when heavily pruned. A few died back and only have a few live veins that lead to the branches.I checked it out today and it has started to break buds all over . I just collected two more younger m.vines on my way home. Thanks Leo.

Hi everyone. Leo, I pruned the vine harder. I only left a few suckers that are from last year's growth hopefully it will bear fruit.

I did a wedge cut as practice on a branch that will probably come off . I will wire it and see if I could follow the main trunks shape. The base gets a lot wider unDer the soil.
