My grapevine produced the first time last summer, but the grapes have seeds. The label is marked: Grape Seedless, "King Of The North" vitis labrusca.
They are what is left of what would be a seed. They aren't a seed, themselves. They will not germinate, and are not viable.

We followed all the directions given for our 6 vines that are 5-6 yrs old to transplant them and only 1 vine is budding the others are not. We live in Saginaw, MI.

Make sure to ALWAYS test your soils before feeding to be sure that one nutrient is not built up over another. This can create issues with uptake. Another thing that I would, personally, recommend would be to measure soil moisture before watering. Often, in areas where rain is plentiful, it will not be necessary to water at all!
