Trellising Grape Vines

We have a grape vine that is a left over from the ones that were taken down when we moved into this house. It seems to be thriving, we even have small grapes. Do we need to feed, fertilize, etc? How do we put it on a trellis? It is about three feet high and the bottom branches are drooping on the ground.

Here's a picture of our grape vine 2 years ago. It has covered the swing and frame and has lot of grapes on it this year. Yes, you need to put some composted manure around it and water when dry weather. (07/26/2009)

You may also put a fence near the vine, or just some lattice or wire as others do. (07/27/2009)

Better build a strong trellis! I used 2" x 2" poles after the vines and grapes became too heavy for bamboo poles. Planted 2 vines in 1996 and now they cover the whole front end of our single-wide mobile home. Once they get started you can't ever get rid of them. They have to be cut way back every Fall just like roses. I haven't ever done anything but water ours and it is still almost out of control every year. (08/03/2009)
