Grapes

Propagation

Grapes are a perennial crop, grown in many different soils and climatic conditions. Propagation is done by grafting and cutting (stenting) in one. The cuttings initially measure 20 to 40 cm and usually take about a year to be ready for planting out.

Jiffy’s specific solutions

Jiffy offers pots and pellets specially designed for the long grape cuttings. Our Jiffy Pot Original is 100% biodegradable. There is no need to remove the pot during planting out, saving you time. The plants root better thanks to air pruning and there is no risk of transplant shock. That means you can plant out after just three months.

Multiple advantages

Our Pellets and Preforma Plugs are also excellent solutions for grape propagation. The Preforma Plugs can be used in any available tray on the market. All of these media solutions give you multiple advantages: no use of plastics, no transplant shock, and time savings.
