Propagating Grape Vines from Cuttings

A friend of mine grows a seedless grape vine that produces the sweetest, dark purple grapes I have ever tasted. My question is how do I start a new vine or vines from a seedless grape?

You are in luck because grape vines are easy to propagate from cuttings. With this method a section of the stem is cut, inserted into a potting medium and new roots sprout from the planted end of the stem. Here is how to do it.

Move the cutting outdoors after the last frost date in your area. Place it in a shady spot for a week before planting it in a sunny location where you want it to grow. Keep it well watered the first year until it is fully established. As it develops, give the vine some support, such as a trellis or fence.
