Hi there, I have a home in the Port Moody area, which received terrific sun most of the day. the north (back) part of my yard has a dry soil, grass doesn't like to stay green up there. I want to plant some grape vines in 2005, and I was at a friends house today and they had these small purple grapes without seeds (delicious). I don't plan to make wine, but having grapes too eat and look at would be best for us. Do I need a male and femail vine growing together? how do you determine which is which? I understand about the pruning rules and that the roots can dig through sandy soil (possibly), but need to be watered regulary - I was thinking about an in-ground watering system for that? Any idea on the male/female vine? Suggestions on grapes for around Vancouver that are easy to grow and eat? Thanks in advance! Todd.
