This is very encouraging! Do you have any pictures you could offer of those herbs underneath the grape vines?

What exactly is meant by growing them 1.5 meters off the ground. Are the first leaves 1.5 off the ground or are they in a pot up on some sort of stand 1.5 off the ground?
My green grapes (who knows what variety) are totally being ruined this year. Do I prune the whole thing back, just let it run it's course or...?
I have 2 muscadines planted that are not having any black rot problem. Can they get it or will they be ok as they are adapted to the south. I live in the south east corner of Virginia.
