Thats what i was thinking, go with one, but even one is clearly going to keep outgrowing it. I figured center it, but i guess it isnt needed. I have alot to consider. Thanks for the help

I always heard that chain link fences weren't good for grapevines. Someone recently said something about something in the metal. You really think its a good idea to keep both plants per trellis? Im not worried about losing a plant or having to replace it, im trying to find out what the best spacing is. Thanks for the help

So basically they arent your typical shrubs... would they benefit from a trellis system like i set up for my grapes?

I have three sets of grapevines (green, purple, red) each with a trellis setup like in the picture. Each Trellis has two grapevines. I am doing this mostly for fun, anything that grows is a bonus. Should I 1) remove one vine from each trellis and "center" the other vine? These trellises are about 6 feet wide can i get by with that? i would prefer not to add on sideways if possible. A Question about an Arbor...they say it allows more sunlight to the vine, but if the top is covered wont that limit the amount of sun that gets to the plant coming up from the ground? Ideas, suggestions?

I planted raspberries and blackberries that i bought from Lowes or Home Depot. I was hoping for shrubs like my blueberries have grown, and yet these plants have grown "tentacles" like an octopus. I was hoping to not have to set up a trellis or arbor. Is this how they all grow? or only certain types. I really just wanted some shrubs...I threw some pvc pipe up behind them for now, the blackberries have recently been relocated. I havent had the money nor do i have the interest really in building more proper trellises unless i have to. Advice? Suggestions?

Im posting an older pic and a newer pic. One of my grapevines is already outgrowing my trellis....I am not planning on building an arbor or adding on to my trellis. So i am seeking some advice. Do i cut the vines as they outgrow my trellis? Do i let it flop over and start growing downwards? Interested in some feedback. At least for this year there will be no more construction...

I always read that chain link fences werent ideal for grapevines. Not so sure i want them all over the fence anyway. A friend said the local vineyard had trellises smaller than mine (maybe 4 ft) and they let the grapes go up and come back down and intertwine with itself. Is that ok?

Ok first off..i had assigned space for additional grapevines already, so today i started the process...i dug up two grapevines and gave each their own space and their own temporary trellis (until i can afford to build permanent ones....). The Trellis you see in the picture is similar to others i have seen people do, it is the extent i planned on using. I wasnt planning on making it like an arbor, so my question was what do i do when the vines get to the top? do I cut them? do I let them fall over and work downwards?

I actually have 3 separate locations (like the pic) each with 2 plants. Ive decided on the above trellis setup, my question is once they reach the top do i just keep cutting and trimming them? No matter what set up you have at some point its going to grow past it, how do i handle that? Should i dig up the plant on the right and re-plant it? Will the one on the left spread out to the right?
