IN ANCIENT MYTHOLOGY THE GRAPEVINE SYMBOLISES FAITH AND KINDNESS.
A perfect gift for a wine-lover, this beautifully wrapped grapevine will produce bunches of sweet, ruby-red grapes every autumn. Fresh leaves and clusters of tiny, pale green flowers appear in spring. The vine will happily flourish in a sunny, sheltered garden, cool conservatory or greenhouse.
Every vine is organically nurtured in The Present Tree's gardens so when you place your order, a beautiful grapevine will be freshly selected by our devoted gardeners here, before being carefully wrapped and placed in its luxury parcel.
An exclusively designed card with your personal message, the story of your vine’s ancient symbolism and a full care guide is also enclosed with your gift. Add an engraved brass plaque (see images above) inscribed with your message so this special gift is always remembered.
The grapevine is deciduous and naturally transforms with every season, so it will remain dormant and bare every winter until the warmth of our spring sunshine encourages new buds and leaves to grow.
Caring for your vine
Your grapevine is growing in its organic pot filled with top-notch compost, so no green fingers are required, just natural daylight and water. We never use harmful chemicals or pesticides, just a special blend of organic oils so every grapevine is super healthy. We have added special nutrients to your grapevine’s compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. This organic goodness will release into the soil for the next 9 months to ensure your vine continues to flourish.
In a few weeks, plant your grapevine, still in its organic pot so the roots are not disturbed, in a large flower pot (one with holes for drainage) or in a sunny, sheltered spot in the garden. It will appreciate a wall or fence for support as it grows.
This grapevine may reach a height of 4 metres in 5 years, if allowed to grow naturally.
Your tree gift's parcel travels in a clear eco bag so the couriers and recipients are aware a living tree is inside and it must be opened as soon as possible.
