i have a kiwi plant ,one branch i trained horizontally ,triimmed back when it got to about 3ft,then another branch sprouted that grew straight up to about 6ft--no fruit or even flowers--what should i do with it now?
they do not take kindly to being pruned and it will have to be a self fertilizing or you will need two.They like a sheltered spot and I know they will take off and some chopping will be needed but for the first while just train it along ,
clicked on email thread indicating areply to my question on kiwi fruit,and nothing there?
thanks got it now!!thanks for your reply
The RHS say pruning is important to help them produce fruit. Their very detailed advice is here:
I have to hack mine back hard and often (and with no ill effects) as they are rampant! They are a tough plant.
thanks Bob,had a good read of that,and will proceed with caution!
