Before you plant Frontenac grapes, it's important to find a location that gets full sun. Frontenac grapes need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day to thrive. You'll also want to make sure your soil is well-drained and not overly acidic. It's a good idea to test your soil pH and adjust if necessary.
When it comes time to plant your Frontenac grapes, it's best to purchase disease-resistant rootstock. This will help ensure your grapes are healthy and productive for many years. Plant your Frontenac grapes in the early spring, spacing them 6-8 feet apart. Make sure to thoroughly water your grapes after planting.
Once your Frontenac grapes have been established, it's important to prune them regularly. Pruning will help encourage new growth and maximize your grape harvest. To prune, use clean, sharp shears to trim off any dead, diseased, or unproductive branches.
