The grape is a sun-loving hardy deciduous woody-stemmed climber from Asia- Minor and the Caucasus. It does best in a temperate climate with springs free of frost and long warm summers. This concise, illustrated handbook contains detailed information on all aspects of grape care, providing invaluable reference for amateur gardeners and experienced growers alike.

The straightforward approach to essential techniques, together with advice on tackling pests and other problems, and the directory of recommended varieties, will ensure successful results.
