On the north the park is bordered by a vinery producing fine white grapes.
When forcing is commenced, the vinery is shut up for two or three weeks without fire heat, the mean temperature ranging about 50°.
In 1863 it was independently discovered by Westwood in an English vinery at Hammersmith; he was ignorant of Fitch's observation, and called it Peritymbia vitisana.
In a vinery, tomatohouse or a peach-house it is often good practice at the time of flowering to tap the branches smartly with a stick so as to ensure the dispersal of the pollen.
The principal of these are the vinery, peach house, cucumber and melon house and orchard house.
The Vinery is a house devoted to the culture of the grape-vine, which is by far the most important exotic fruit cultivated in English gardens.
When forming part of a range a vinery would in most cases be a lean-to structure, with a sharp pitch (45°-50°) if intended for early forcing, and a flatter roof (40°) with longer rafters if designed for the main and late crops.
Propagate chrysanthemums in cool-house or vinery under hand lights or frames.
In the vinery and peach-house, attend to the keeping down of insects by syringing; and promote the growth of the young shoots, by damping the walls and paths morning and evening.
