I agree with bob. Woolly aphids on the vines. The grape splitting and going mouldy is often caused by irregular watering and inadequate ventilation. If they are dry, then get a lot of water, the grapes swell too fast and split.
We have a friend in environmental health, he flies all over the world to take samples of water systems. His most famous time was when he was winched by helicopter on to a cruise ship off of Australia. the Australian authorities would not let it dock. Two days to get there. two hours work, two days to get back.
He says there is no way he would ever sit in a hot tub that other people have sat in.
Well, I succumbed to an email from T&M for blue poppies. I turned all my Tesco vouchers into T&M vouchers. Only trouble, when I ordered, they seem to have changed the rules. You cant use Tesco boost T&M vouchers on special offers. So I didn't order the blue poppies as a present for my sister in law, and I now have £75 worth of T &M vouchers to use on full priced stuff.
I think the sofa is the best place for everyone today. I've been out for the papers and the locality is full of people stocking up for a seige. It is snowing gently here, but not settling as the air temp is 2C.
I've thrown food out for the birds and that is it for the time being.
There is a way of propagating an identical plant from the seed. Some citrus exhibit polyembryony. There is a weak vegetative embryo in the seed as well as a cross pollinated one, but the cross pollinated one usually develops in preference. The vegetative embryo can be dissected out, and will give a plant identical to the parent, in much the same way as the cutting.
Maybe this will help.
personally I think that is interesting but a lot of faff. I would just buy named varieties if you want fruit.

It does no harm. It means you have clean air. I would leave it.
When I told the man from the subcontinent that he was not from Virgin, he was a lying toerag, he said that my account would be hacked first!!.
Oh all right then, I'll let you plant malware and pinch all my money.....
The next one I'm going to tell him that I've changed to Yorkshire broadband. I'd like to see them imitate a good yorkshire accent.
Not a good photo, but I suspect it is a Rhus Typhinus or stag horned sumach. A better photo when it comes into leaf would be definitive. Are the branches furry?
I finally found the picture. Half way down this page, banana before and after.
Then I wrapped it in fleece.
I have one of those squirrel proof feeders. It is the second one. The first lasted about 12 years. It annoys the hell out of the squirrels. The big birds don't even try it.
Mine is like this.
It holds a lot of seed.
