Hi, I can't id this vine and would like some help please.
It has produced no flowers or fruit at all but put on masses of growth. Any ideas? Thanks
I could be wrong, but I'm inclined to think it's a kiwifruit.
Actually sue, I thought the same . The leaves don't look shiny enough for grapes.
I would say grape of some kind - my Kiwi leaves are oval and hairy, but perhaps other kiwi's have grape-shapes leaves?
On googling kiwi leaves they seem to be heart shaped. There are no hairs on the leaves or stems...could be another variety - I know nothing about kiwis.
That looks like it, Dove - felt sure it had to be a vitis of some kind.
Daintiness, how come you have fingernails without dirt underneath them? Or did you use a hand model for the photo?
Well Dovefromabove I think you have got it! From what I read should be wonderful in autumn - I'll post a picture when it colours and forget about fruit, flowers, pruning just encourage it to spread!!
Oops! I forgot to say thank you....so thank you very much to all of you. I am very grateful and quite polite!
Sara4 - LOL - I can't believe you said that!! As I took the photo I actually bent my fingers slightly away from the camera in case it picked up the dirt!!
I'd have had to bend mine like a contortionist to conceal my dirt, and I haven't any fingernails left either! I come in from the garden looking like I've been at the coalface all day (mind you I'm just the grubby type, I think - I can't look at a paintbrush without painting my clothes, and if there's something to spill I'll do it ....)
I'd love to have one - I don't really have the space, but I am so tempted every autumn when I see them colour up ....
