Saving a grape vine #147046

Asked August 14, 2013, 6:41 AM EDT

I picked the wrong house sitter when I went on vacation for 6 weeks. I returned to find all of my plants dead or on the verge of death and my old grape vine really suffering. I'm assuming he didn't water it. There are still some green leaves and some small grape bunches, but most of the leaves are turning brown. I have given it a good soak, but I was wondering if there is anything I can do to make sure it makes it?

Expert Response

If the vine is well-established, it should recover if you remove the fruit clusters and give it a heavy watering.
