Height up to 15m/50ft. A vigorous climber ideal for covering an eyesore. White flowers with purple anthers appear in June and July followed by small yellow fruit.
Plant 30cm/1ft away from wall or other support during February and March. Provide support to which the climber can become established. Prune during the early spring to remove damaged stems, to train and to control the size of growth. Mulch the roots following a thorough soaking with rain. Kiwi fruit plants carry single sex flowers on separate plants. It is necessary to grow a male plant to fertilise up to five or six female plants (but plant them close together).
Sow seed at 15°C/59°F in March. Raise the seedlings in the greenhouse and harden them off during the summer. Bring them into the cold greenhouse for the winter and plant into their permanent positions the following spring. Actinidia can also be propagated by layering one of the lower stems in the spring or by taking cuttings during July.
