    What I win?? Ahahah!!

    Actually I wanted to ask. I have two type grape grow on trellis In front my home. They are in pots in ground with no added holes to allow root to come out of pot. If the roots are confined to pot will that slow its grow rate? Was growing like crazy and suddenly just stopped as soon as it made it to the top of trellis and started vining over the top or growing very very slow....
    I'm not sure if I can get pot out without really disturbing the trunk because it attach to trellis inches from pot. Should I use rod jam threw soil breaking out bottom of pot? Or leave it?

    Mike, I'm no grape expert, yet I know they have huge powerful roots and need they need a lot space. I would remove or destroy the pots personally, assuming the grapes are winter hardy in Chicago.

      Concordia and green seedless. Problem is my Chi-Talia Blanco fig in middle of both grape pots. Think grape roots kill fig roots?

        It'll be a pretty good fight for the water...both are agressive roots...just don't supply any guns or knives to the plants...they'll work it out....familia

        if you want to release them from the pots...split the pots down the sides 4 times...quartered....and remove the pieces of the pot with a long chisel/knife/demo bar, wrecking bar and leave the bottom...the plant will come out the sides nicely.....but the farm is a good idea

      Something need to move then. Put the grapes on the farm.
