We pride ourselves on supplying healthy grapevines of the highest quality. However, it is not unusual for natural losses to occur following planting, even where good plant husbandry has been upheld. 

Many factors exist which may have either a ‘positive’ or a ‘negative’ impact on the loss rate experienced, such as the storage and handling of plants upon receipt, the quality of planting, the ground conditions, soil type compatibility, rainfall, drought and on-going maintenance. All of which are out of our control. 

We advise every customer to allow for this potential loss rate and to budget for replacements for 2 - 3 years following the initial planting. 

Despatched with every order is our Vine Planting Guidelines document, which includes information on how to prepare the soil into which your vines will be planted, and how to treat your vines upon delivery. Further information can also be sought by contacting a staff member of Vines Direct Ltd directly. 

The advice given in the Vine Planting Guidelines document or by our staff does not provide a 100% guarantee for plant success, but will help to reduce any potential loss rate.
