It's time to show off your garden filled with American Meadows products!
This French/American hybrid grape produces a dry to semi-dry white wine with clean, crisp herbal flavor. Its a great choice for a backyard winery.
Choose a spot in the garden with good drainage in full sun. Seyval Blanc belongs to a class of French-American hybrids that are crosses between native American grapes and Vitus vinifera. p>
1. Plant in early spring as soon as your soil can be worked. Grapes will grow in most well draining soils with pH preferably between 5.6 and 6.4.
2. Place your rooted cutting in a hole large enough to spread roots in a downward outward fashion.
3. Fill hole, tamp soil around grape and water well. Prune cutting back to a single cane leaving 2-3 buds.
4. After danger of frost is past and growth has begun, remove all but the 2 strongest shoots per vine.
HARVEST TIME: Mid to late season
HABIT: Grapes require pruning and adapt well to many different shapes and forms. Ornamental trellises, arbors, or fences may be used to support your crop.
USAGE: Wine making, fresh eating, jams and jellies and juice making.
PLANTING TIPS: Keep well watered and weed free to ensure a good crop. Established grapes well adapted to your climate will produce grapes for many years. Prune your vines in early spring remembering that they bear fruit on one year old wood.

Comments about American Meadows Wine Grape Seyval Blanc:
Excellent first year root growth and very strong first year vine base. I can't wait until I start to get grapes in a few years.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
