Re: grape vines

They can sit on a lattice but as with most "off-the-ground" fruits, that contact point can be an opportunity for some of the mildews and fungus maladies to take hold. They also have a mind of their own and may drop thru or weave in and out of such a support, not that is necessarily a bad thing.
