How deep are these roots? Will they grow in a raised bed trough 6 in wide and grow up trellis?
Katie S on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you're going to grow the kiwiberry vine in a raised bed, raise it at least 12 inches. The climbing nature of the vines means it will happily grow along a trellis.
I had 1 male and 3 female kiwis. I am assuming this is the "male" counterpart? I can't seem to get the male pollinator to survive. Is there something I am doing incorrectly? The female plants are ridiculously strong, and over 10 years old. I am thinking of killing them because I don't get any fruit!! Any suggestions to keep this "guy" alive would be helpful, thanks!
NANCY T on Apr 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is the male counterpart, yes. A non-fruiting pollinator for female kiwi vines. You might try starting the vine in a container indoors near a sunny window. This will help protect it from whipping winds and other elements that might have caused past failure to thrive. Once it's sizable and healthy, carefully transition the vine outside into the ground when it has had some time to grow larger. This article on acclimation (or hardening off) helps advise what to do to transition plants from indoors to outdoors: http://www.starkbros.com/growing-guide/article/acclimating-new-plants-and-trees
