Planting

  • 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.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.

"Good. I rang saying I was trying to find a plant (kiwi) for my mum’s birthday that weekend and their website said they have one and it’s a 2/3 day delivery. The girl on the phone confirmed this and I put an order in. 2 days later on checking the website it said not dispatched. Panicking I rang them back and was told yes it’s a 2/3 day delivery but they have to get it sent from the grower first and it hasn’t arrived yet. Wish the girl on the phone told me that! Having no confidence it would arrive it time I ordered one from another place. I don’t know how they did it and assume a next day delivery but the plant arrived 2 days later and in time – arriving Friday (birthday Sunday). So my negative would be they should state clearer if there’s extra delay on deliveries as it has to come from growers first. But my positive is they didn’t fail me and it arrived in time as they promised."
