A simple plant arch

I had some grape plants which were grown from seed. I didn’t want to go to all the trouble of posts and wire so came up with this simple arch:

The original post about it is here.

Here’s a view of the pipe in the ground showing how the larger pipe arch fits in:

The larger pipe is really heavy duty 25 mm plastic and Bunnings sell them in pre-cut 3 metre lengths.

The Concord grape at the left hand end has grown well:

The one at the other end is slower:

The Concord has reached the halfway point and I was rapt to see this:

And this:

Flower buds! Yay!

    Yummo…grapes! Now you just have to stop every critter this side of the Pecos from pinching them before you get them ;). I have lots of cuttings that I took from the muscat grape vine that I planted at our old house that struck earlier this year and so I have grapes to plant out myself…better find a place for them and I am going to use your trellis idea as well…excellent share Bev, cheers for the inspiration šŸ™‚

    Yay! I hope your grapes are tasty. I assume they are table grapes of course. I like the arch technique! I thinks I will be trying something similar next time I need to net a tree.

    Very nice arch, and great to see tiny bunches on your vines. I have had my four grape vines in for 2 years, and they are about 1 metre tall. Hopefully they will grow a lot stronger like yours have.
