Let's grow the The Kiwi in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. To develop to their best, climber plants need grates, or they can be placed near a wall, which functions as a support.Let's grow the The Kiwi outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.
The Kiwi has a climber deportment. This plant in the summer assumes a pink colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 4 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. These plants are shrubs.
Climber plants have a quick and vigorous development, letís enrich the soil, towards the end of the winter or in autumn, with manure or slow release fertilizer; during the spring, once a month, we can add a fertilizer for green or flowering plants, rich in nitrogen and potassium to the irrigating water .
We suggest watering the The Kiwi every 2-3 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. This plant has a climber development, at times very vigorous; therefore it is good to remember that the more developed plants need more water compared to the more limited specimens.
These plants need a substratum with an excellent drainage.
