There are many varieties of grapevine, which bear grapes that can be eaten as a dessert or used to produce wine – many can be used for both. Some are tender and need the shelter of a greenhouse to yield a generous crop. If you don’t have a greenhouse, don’t worry – there’s a wide variety that can be grown in well-drained soil in a sheltered spot like a south- or west-facing fence or wall.
