Feed and water regularly until fully established, particularly during hot dry periods. Train the stems onto their supports. In autumn apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant.


Prune kiwi fruit plants in winter. In the first two years, prune plants to create an espalier framework of one permanent leading stem and two horizontal stems. Cut back the leading shoot to maintain it within the allotted space. Fruit is formed on the previous year's wood, and also on fruit spurs created by cutting back side shoots on horizontal stems to 3 or 4 buds. Overcrowded side shoots can be thinned out to allow light and air around the developing fruit. Plants may take 3 years before producing a full crop of delicious kiwi fruit.

Grow kiwi plants in a sunny position in any fertile, well drained soil. A sheltered position is essential as kiwis are particularly sensitive to adverse weather conditions. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Plant kiwi vines, firm in and water well. Provide the twining stems with an appropriate support wires strung between sturdy posts, to train as an espalier.

Well sized plant, exellent packaging 2013-03-21

We have only just received our hardy kiwi plant, it is a decent size with buds on so have high hopes for the growing year. Be aware though - I had read this elsewhere online and it is true - the roots are truly like catnip - we had two cats all but wrapped around the kiwi vine when it arrived. They behaved in every respect as if it was catnip. I had read that the plants may require some protection from cats digging up the roots and it seems that this will definitely be the case.
