Silk Tree  Nurseries graft  and grow a wide range of edible, wine, and ornamental grape vines, all of which are hardy in the UK climate, and will give reliable, heavy crops each year. If you are looking to plant a small vineyard or large arbour, then please contact us for quantity discounts if ordering more than 25 vines. We can also supply  in vineyard quantity. The majority of our grape vines are grafted onto disease resistant SO4   rootstock.


EDIBLE, JUICE  & WINE GRAPE VINES
Early From  The Lane   - WHITE, EDIBLE TABLE GRAPE
Ideal for the UK climate because, as the name suggests, it produces grapes earlier than most varieties, this is a lovely flavoured white grape vine of medium size.

12litre (approx. 7ft  inc. pot)  69.99 (E)  


Boskoop Glory  - BLACK, EDIBLE TABLE GRAPE
This grape  vine, Boskoop Glory, is often mistakenly  sold as a 'wine grape', but it is in our opinion one of THE best edible grapes you can grow in the UK climate. It has a really exceptional flavour, with medium sized grapes produced in quantity, even on a small 3-4ft vine. This is a fast growing grape vine, needing support such as a trellis, pagoda, or fence, or can be grown up and  around another climber, or tree. Fruit WILL ripen in this country and you  will have edible   grapes a year after planting  this vine.

Vitis labrusca 'Niagara' - RARE - STRAWBERRY GRAPE VINE
Sweet flavoured, WHITE SEEDLESS grape vine


We are very pleased to be offering a range of 'Strawberry' grape vines that are extremely rare to find in this country, and, as far as we know, we are the only nursery in the UK to be offering these rare but delicious grape varieties.
What are 'Strawberry' grape vines? They are grafted (see below) hybrid grape vines that have evolved from the Northern Fox Grape called Vitis labrusca. They are highly prized by both Californian vineyards, and European vineyards for their very sweet, very fruity flavoured grapes that give that amazing fresh fruit flavour to wines such as Ernest & Julio's Turning Leaf and White Grenache. You have never tasted anything like a 'Strawberry' grape fresh off the vine - it tastes just very sweet, and is ideal for juice on the table, and you can also use it for jam, jelly, and preserve making, as well, of course, in wine. Requires a warm sheltered wall for grapes to ripen.

ORNAMENTAL GRAPE VINES
Brandt - FIRE VINE
You have never seen anything quite like the spectacular colours of the Fire Grape Vine, Vitis 'Brandt'. One of the most vigorous grape vines available, it can cover an arbour in just one season(!). It fruits madly with bunches of black grapes, but this grape vine is mostly grown for it's magnificent autum foliage. Take a look at the picture to the right - this was taken of our own vine last autumn - incredible scarlet red with yellow veins, and these leaves cover the vine all through late summer to early winter. It has been the talking point of our garden for the last 3 years.

12litre pot  (approx. 8ft-9ft inc. pot)  79.99 (E)  (1 only)


Coignetiae - Giant Crimson Glory Vine
The ornamental
Giant Crimson Glory Vine is the ideal selection to cover a large wall or fence quickly. Huge leaves are green in Spring and then turn vivid crimson and reds in the autumn. We have some very  large 20litre specimens available now.

12Litre  pot,  9ft-10ft 79.99  (E) ( 8 only)


Spetchley Red - RED FLAME VINE
The ornamental Red Flame Vine, Vitis Spetchley Red, is grown for it's spectacular autumn display of fire red leaves. Darkening with each day of autumn, the leaves turn from purple to crimson to a deep scarlet. On a large vine, covering a pagoda, this can give a most dazzling late autumn display. This is a FULLY HARDY vine, able to withstand harsh winters, and is quite vigorous. It has edible black grapes, but is really grown for its wonderful foliage.

  10Litre  pot (just repotted)  9ft-10ft  inc .pot 69.99 (E) - ( 3 only)
