Should I also grow herbs in a grapevine's pot?

    1 responses

I'm growing a new grapevine (sultana variety) in a large pot about the size of a half-wine barrel.

With so much empty space around the vine I'd like to grow herbs like mint, oregano, basil etc.

My concern is whether this will rob the vine of nutrients and so harm its health or grape production.

Should I just mulch around the vine, or is it fine to grow herbs around it? As it's right next to my outdoor table the smell of fresh herbs would be an aromatic bonus too.

Give it a shot!
Grapes will grow in very poor nutrient soil - and if you pick the right herbs it may even help the grape.
Your grape would probably enjoy sharing its pot with oregano, basil, geraniums, garlic, chives, and rosemary.
Just DON'T plant them with anything from the cabbage or radish family.
