grape 'Regent' (PBR)
- Position: full sun
- Soil: well-drained, preferably neutral to alkaline soil
- Rate of growth: fast-growing
- Flowering period: June to July
- Hardiness: fully hardy
A fairly vigorous, disease-resistant, outdoor grape that will produce clusters of blue-black, edible seeded grapes that have a deliciously sweet flavour. Its attractive foliage forms great summer cover when grown over a pergola, and it turns vibrant shades of red and orange in autumn before it falls. For good fruit development, it will appreciate being grown against a warm and sunny, south-facing wall with protection from cold winds.
- Garden care: When planting incorporate plenty of well-rotted organic matter in to the planting hole. Prune in mid-winter, cutting back to fit the available space, and again in mid-summer if necessary.

Q:Does this 'Regent' grape have a lot of pips? I am trying to choose a grape for my pergola to give summer shade, autumn colour and good to eat without too many pips (it's not for wine making) do you have a better idea?Asked on 2/3/2013 by Pam from Burnham on sea, Somerset
It is hard to be too specific, but as a very general rule, these grapes will have between 2 and 4 pips.Answered on 6/3/2013 by Helen from Crocus
Q:Grape vine problems
I have a very old grape in my green house which upto 3 years ago produced grapes in abundance. They were late (September) and black so I presume it is a Hamburg. It was there before I arrived at the house and infact I had a green house built around the vine as the old one had fallen down. I guess it is at least 25years old. I now have a problem with it. Every year the vine starts life very well then it seems to get a sort of scaley insect on it which does not seem to move but the whole new growth gets covered in them. When the fruit appears, it grows quite well to start with and then the grapes go hard and get a white powdery coating all over them The growth then seems to stop.Any ideas of the problem.?

A:Hello Michael, Grapes are prone to a number of different pests and diseases, and I suspect that yours are suffering from both scale insects and powdery mildew.
