Talkback: How to plant a kiwi plant

Posted: 01/08/2012 at 17:11

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.

Thanks for your invitation to join your team, Kate. I understand only strikers needed now but I'll give it a go. Will there be any lemon drizzle cake?  Do you think we'll be ready in time or the next Lympics. I fancy a trip to Rio.

Just had an international call (not answered). They must have the power back on today.

I watched a bit of the horsey crosscountry yesterday and loved the airbag thingy that inflated when they fell off. I might take up riding again.

I agree with 4711 they do sting when they bite. they apparently take a lump of flesh out when they bite.

The Marines use avon 'skin so soft' to keep midges and other biting insects away.

What's the weather like in your area?

Wow Geoff. I might move in next door when your neighbours sell.

Scorching here. I've cut the grass this morning. The dog has found a cooler spot under the kiwi bush. The kiwi is covered in flowers every year and was supposed to be self-fertile but never has fruit. I don't know whether it is a boy or a girl other wise I would get it a friend

Horrible things

I saw a  programme once that said flying ants all fly at the same time but not seen any yet.

Hate horse flies too. they came out as soon as the hot weather arrived. I put on anti-histamine cream as soon as I get a bite otherwise I get horrible big lumps.

Don't tell anyone, but Geoff is opening the Olympics. It's a closely guarded secret.

Hi Frank,

Lovely sunny day in Cornwall too, I love airshows as I was in the RAF many moons ago. I went to one at Middle-St-George years ago. I'm an ex Teesider. I lived at Gainford not far from Darlington.

Enjoy your paddle.
