Is the Kiwi any good in a clay soil if you add mulch to it to lighten the soil or in a pot in the green house.

Kiwi vines are seriously vigorous, plant with caution - not for the faint hearted & not to be planted close to path or doorway as featured on GW ! On poor thin soil on chalk nr Salisbury Plain, not suffered from snow & frosts ! VINE grow 10 ft in a season. 5 grown from seeds 2 removed as they are trifids. I cut huge amounts out twice a year. The female plants have had 50 kiwis in a year. At Stourton Gdns by Stourhead, kiwis grow over cartwheels on 10 ft poles, giant umbrellas of foliage.

Hello kiwi growers,

Although the plants will survive outside in the winter, for a good crop it is ideal to grow kiwis in a large greenhouse. However, you could be lucky with a crop grown outside. You would not usually grow them in a pot, so bringing them in for winter wouldn't be an option - it's either inside or outside all the time! Yes they are climbers, you'll need to make a framework for them to climb.

I agree with DianaR. Mine is growing against a stone shed and towers above it and have to keep cutting big shoots off. It was supposed to be self-fertile and has lots of flowers but never any fruit. Does anyone know how to tell if it's male or female. The flowers are about the same size as a wild dog rose.

My kiwi plant has flowered the past 4 years but all the blossom falls off.  It was supposed to be self fertile. What can I do and what am I doing wrong
