I have always wanted to grow a grapevine, so this year I purchased one in January, the people at the nursery advised me to cut it back to 3 buds from the base of the stem, as it was I suppose it was near 2 foot long, so when ready to plant I cut it as told, I waited and waited for some signs of life, then just when I was beginning to think it was dead the 3 buds began to show life, i watered the area with tomato feed, but maybe only once every 10 days, the buds turned into leaves and the stems grew longer, now the taller of these shoots has a flower beginning to show, a sort of bluish mauve shade, but I was expecting it to grow like a climbing bean, so i read something from the RHS that says all flowers in the first year should be removed? I can't go back to the nursery due to them being on lock-down, does anyone on here have advise, should I leave it alone and let it grow? I'm going to post a picture later so you can see the development.
Was there a particular question you had?
A picture would help to see if this flower is in fact a grape
What have you got it inside and can you get it in the ground?
