Planting blueberry grapevine cuttings

Today, I could not wait any longer to check and see if my blueberry grapevine cuttings from Paul has rooted or not. And out of the four cuttings, two of them had put out really good root!

So I have located two spots in my backyard next to the pool for them to grow. This is all mostly experiment since I have never grown grapes and this is just too much fun!

Thank you Paul for trading the blueberry grapevines with me! I am really excited to see if these will survive the first year.

Paul, I was reading somewhere that people also plant grapevine cuttings at a 45 degree angle sometimes. Not sure if that will be slightly better than completely on its side, but work a try. Not sure if this stick will put out any more buds, but the other one is looking pretty good.

actually this gives me an idea about how to plant some of these more odd cuttings that root the wrong way.  I think I might try to place them fairly deep and only cover them with a little soil.  as the vine grows upwards, I then can cover the root area with more soil so it will be deep enough for later when the heat comes.  I'll try that.

lookin' good.  although I'm thinking that maybe you should have planted that smaller stick horizontally with the green growth sticking out.   I know it probably wouln't go deep enough.   This week I'm thinking of "unveiling" all those cuttings Ive rooted.
