Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
- Light Requirements: full sun
- Soil Requirements: acid, alkaline, neutral, chalky, loamy, sandy (will tolerate most soil types)
- Moisture: moist but well-drained, well-drained
Water well during the growing season. In hot, dry conditions it might be necessary to water 2 to 3 times a week during this period. Mulch around the base of the plant in late winter.
- Planting Distance: 3m
Kiwi fruits will grown in a variety of soils but prefer fertile, well-drained, slightly acidic soil. They require a sunny, sheltered position, ideally a south or west facing wall. They also grow well along a pergola. In milder areas they can be grown out in the open.
