Grow Kiwi plants in a sheltered, sunny position in any fertile, well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Plant Kiwi, firm in and water well. Provide the twining stems with an appropriate support such as trellis or wires attached to fences and pergolas.
Feed and water regularly until fully established and train stems onto their supports. In autumn apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant. Prune Kiwi fruit plants in winter. In the first two years, prune plants to create an espalier framework of one permanent leading stem and numerous horizontal stems. Cut back the leading shoot to maintain it within the allotted space. Fruit is formed on the previous years wood, and also on fruit spurs created by cutting back side shoots on horizontal stems to 3 or 4 buds. Overcrowded side shoots can be thinned out to allow light and air around the developing fruit. Plants may take 3 years before producing a full crop of delicious Kiwi fruit.
