Now that's something I don't grow...grapes. Nearly planted a field of them once....well part of one. A friend's field ....sloping and south facing. Facing St Michael's Mount actually.
One pear is not enough AEE
Bit shorter, more robust Dove
Excellent BRISTOL86......,many of those I like very much. Methimks you are going to enjoy your garden

Agree...herbs outside and in the ground rather than in pots, except for mint which needs to be restrained
Spike's birthday yesterday.....12. He had loads and loads of treats . A precious old man he is too
mine tomorrow.......I'm expecting loads and loads of treats
Nice of him though Runny
For really impressive cosmos at this time of year, keep some plants back and grow large in 3 litre pots. Pinch regularly. Plant out in mid summer and you will have cosmos, as I have, about 4 to 5' tall. tall cosmos flowers at this time create quite a feature.
Pollination might be the issue AEE. What varieties do you have? Or do you grow just one?
mulching is better I think. Do this is in autumn and apply organic ...like fish blood and bone...in early spring.
Whatever you do Logan go for a stringless vest,,,,,,,er variety .
I find the white flowered to be best flavoured and birds seem to leave them alone.
