Take a look at our website on grapes for planting, care, pruning, and recommended varieties. See Table and juice grapes, seeded and seedless. Wine grapes require specialized knowledge of site requirements, pruning, and pest management. http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/grapes-selection-and-planting

You can plant in early spring about 3-4 weeks before the last frost. Our publication Getting Started With Small Fruits lists mail order sources http://extension.umd.edu/sites/extension.umd.edu/files/_docs/programs/hgic/HGIC_Pubs/Edibles/HG68_Ge...
