I put 4 grape plants in last year. They were about a foot high! They are just starting to sprout as of last week. Imoved a real old 40 year vine this past week. it had about 8 4 to 5 foot branches from the main root! I attached it to several 10 foot high 1/2 inch conduits that I just punched into the ground. There are little buds or leaves starting on the branches! I will make a grape barb later this summer!
