I have a grape vine that has been around for at least 15 years. We moved to the house 3 yrs ago and it is on the chain link fence between my neighbor and I. The problem is that it has beautiful leaves, and in the spring lots of tiny grape clusters. The grape clusters dry up when the grapes grow to the size of a pin head. In 2007 I thought it was the drought. Last year the same thing happened but no drought. There is an underground electric pet fence that runs parallel to the fence about 2 ft away on my neighbors side. Could the electrical field from the fence be the cause of the grapes not maturing? If not what could it be? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Are you trimming them each year? My parents owned a vineyard and even though I don't know much about grapes, I remember my Dad trimming all 40 acres every year before we had to get out and tie. They may be putting to much energy into the vines and leaves.
