If you're growing native grape species then just take cuttings, dip the bottom end into rooting hormone, and plant them in wet sand. They'll root before spring. In the spring just as they start to leaf out you transplant them. (It's better to transplant BEFORE they leaf-out but after they've had plenty of time to develop significant roots.)
If you're growing European varieties then you have an additional step of grafting the variety to a native rootstock. European varieties are not resistant to a couple of fungi that totally infect soil on this continent. In that case you're better off buying grafted and nursery-grown plants.
The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.
