PLANT GRAPES IN NOVEMBER Niswonger Gives Points On Varieties And Culture The best months lor planting grapes and muscadine grapes are November and March, says 1^. R Niswonger. in charge of extension horticulture at State college. He suggests five varieties of bunch grapes from which to make selections for the home garden. The Portland aild Niag-* ra are white and bear early. The Deleware is red and early The Fredonia is black and mid season The Catawba is red and late. The best varieties of musca dine grapes are the scupper nong. which is white; Thomas, reddish blaclf; and the James and Mish. both black Mr. Niswonger suggests that four one-year-old bunch grapes be planted in theTiSme garden, set 10 by 10 feet. Plant two muscadine grape vines about 20 feet apart Practically all va-, rieties of muscadines are steriJe and there should be one male vine with one to eight varieties. In the first year's pruning, Mr. Niswonger recommends that only one shoot be allowed to grow and develop into a trunk, taking off all other shoots. When pruning bufich grapes in later years, pruning consists of having two canes of the pre vious year's growth tied to each of two wires, one running each way from the trunk, or four new canes, bearing eight to 10 buds each. The new canes shuld be selected from those starting nearest the trunk. Fruiting canes of the previous season Is growth between the selected canes and the trunk should be cut back to two buds The training of the musca dine grape on the arbor con sists in developing eight 'arms radiating to the top of the trunk on each of the w'-es crossing the Center post The unit of pruning is an arm of one to eight years old. sup norting several spurs with four buds each.
