You can! Amazing right?
All you need is two Hardy Kiwi vines and some room to let them ramble.
You need a male plant and a female plant in order to get fruit.
Hardy Kiwi are not quite the same as what you buy in the store.
They are smaller and fuzz-less, you eat them like grapes.
I bought two kiwi vines last fall at Lowes (they don’t seem to have them this year) in containers and potted them up into large pots. They over wintered in the garage
Start by digging a hole.
This is not the time to be lazy!
Dig your hole larger than the pot, and break up the soil.
|We have so many worms! Amazing!|
This is also to time to amend your soil.
We have really, really clay soil so I added alpaca-poo to the soil
*Tip – When you dig a whole for a container grown plant, pop the plant out and fill the container with the dirt you dig out of the hole. It’s not perfect but it keeps you from digging way too little or much!
Add the stake to the hole before you add the plant to minimize root damage
Fill in the hole and gently firm the soil
Tie the plant to the stake (HK vines get huge!! You’ll need some sort of trellis for them) and mulch around the bottom to suppress weeds.
