When planting Louise Swenson grapevines, it is important to choose a sunny site with well-draining soil. The vines should be spaced at least 6 feet apart to allow for proper air circulation and sunlight exposure.

The vines should be trained on a trellis or arbor to promote even growth and to protect the grapes from the elements. Pruning is also important to the health of the vines. Pruning should be done in the late winter or early spring before the new growth begins. It is important to remove any dead or damaged vines, as well as any shoots that are not producing grapes.

Fertilizing is also important for the health of Louise Swenson grapevines. A balanced fertilizer should be applied in the spring and again in the summer. Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to excessive vine growth and reduced grape production.
