I live in an urban area in Virginia and I have a grapevine that I'd like to plant, but there isn't a clearly obvious place to put it, so I'm seeking some advice.
Potential spot #1 is at the corner of a deck, where I would train it grow at a 90 degree angle in two directions. The south side of the deck gets the most sun, perhaps around 7 hours with a little of that being dappled sun. The west side probably gets at most 6 hours of sun, but even more dappled as the sun moves around buildings and a tree.
Potential spot #2 is by a retaining wall with a nice fence on top that ought to have something growing on it. It starts getting full direct sunlight between 12-1pm, until sunset. My concern is that the roots would have only one direction to grow (away from the wall), and they may even be strong enough to buckle the concrete wall? Don't want to cause problems for the landlord.
