I started looking into ordering grapevines for spring 2014 for my #homevineyard. I thought doing this 7 or 8 months in advance would be sufficient. I was wrong. A number of the nurseries I have contacted are already sold out.
I have a client who owns a winery and he recommend several nurseries. I reached out to all of them, and the only one that has vines for spring 2014 is Grey Creek. Grey creek seems reputable and nice, and I honestly can not tell one vine supplier from another, so I will likely go with them. Their website kinda sucks, but that does not mean that their vines are not great.
In batches of 25 vines, the vines are $6 each. This will be a total of $300 for my 50 backyard vines. Not a bad price. I wish I could get vines that were already a year or two old, but that seems unlikely. I saw some nurseries out of NY selling two year old vines, but they will not ship into California. Ohwell, can’t have it all.
