Winegrowers Supplies - Grafted Vines, for delivery to you in March/April 2014
In the past 29 years I've imported more than 978,000 of the finest
quality grafted vines from the best nurseries in Germany, France and
Luxembourg. Special clones where available and rootstocks (all resistant to Phylloxera) appropriate to the
vine variety, your training system and soil structure / alkalinity.
Vines have double-waxed tops and roots pruned ready for planting.
Comprehensive advice is given free of charge.
You might be able to find vines a little cheaper from another supplier, but quality is much more important than saving a few pence. I've always purchased from the most reputable nurseries.
This year I can only supply vines in bundles of 25, each bundle having its own EC Plant Passport. This is how they are packed in France and Germany.
Prices (for the total of all varieties ordered):-
25 - 300 £2.20 per vine
325 - 475 £2.00
500 - 975 Euro 1.95
1000 - 1975 Euro 1.85
2000 or more Euro 1.75 - for 2000+ vines I can arrange planting by
laser-guided planting machine, please ask for a special price.
Vines are VAT zero rated, but standard rate Vat is chargeable on the cost of planting.
Where Euro prices are shown, invoices can be paid in Euros or in £ Sterling, converted from Euros at the exchange rate obtained when I transfer money to pay for the vines.
Delivery: to your address, within UK and some EU countries:
25 - 300 vines £16.50, 325 - 1975 vines £30.00, 2000+ vines no charge.
Payment: invoiced from early November. 100% deposit, payment is due by end of January, before I import the vines; hence there is no disadvantage in ordering early. Please confirm your order as early as possible, since demand for some varieties often exceeds the supply. Late orders may be possible, even in April.
To place an order: please send an e-mail to Derek@winegrowers.info listing the vines you wish to buy, with your address for delivery. I will then e-mail you a confirmation.
Varieties available: are shown on the list below, please click on the name for detailed information about the variety.
High-stem vines: I can supply these in some varieties, but I have to pay 1.65 Euros more for each vine, so you would need to add this to my prices above.
Organic vine-growing: I have never come across a nursery who supplies vines certified as 'organic'; however, since it takes more than 2 years to produce a crop the Soil Association's 'conversion period' is complete before there is a crop. You should ask the Soil Association about this, they will give you full information on their requirements and what chemicals you can use. I've supplied vines to many customers who've registered with the Soil Association.
