Kiwi fruits will grow 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.

"In one month I bought 3 plants from primrose - one honeyberry, one kiwi Jenny and one kiwi Issai. The honeyberry was perfectly healthy. Within 1 week of receiving both kiwi plants both have a lot of white fungus looking stuff on it. I sprayed some insecticide and fungicide on it hoping it will fix the problem. These plants aren't as healthy as those I have bought from other retailers."

Primrose says: "Thank you for your feedback. To avoid the growth of fungus, ensure the plant is kept in a well ventilated area and is not overwatered. I hope the insecticide and fungicide gets rid of your current fungus problem. "
