This year we had to replace 650 plants in total.
From these photos you can see the rich and fertile soil in our Helderberg vineyards. We rented the digger to carve deep holes. We then added lime, phosphates and fertilisers to the soil and mixed well.
The new vines were planted a week later. It is important to fertilise these new vines well, and provide ample water as the older vines next to them provides competition.
These vines will bear grapes in about three years from now.
