Our Feedback

Dear Victoriana, Just to let you know that I have received my tree (yesterday) It was left outside on my patio. I did not hear the courier ring the bell, so you will have no signature. My sister in Wales received hers a few days earlier. When I unwrapped it I thought you had decorated it for me, with all the shredded pieces of paper! What a good idea. We are both very pleased with the quality and packaging. Also the large buds already on them. We will both definitely shop with you again. Thank you so much. Kind regards,
June Chadwick, Seaton, Devon

Kiwis

Although kiwi plants prefer warmer, sunnier positions in general, you will find that some kiwi plant varieties within our listings can actually tolerate extremely low temperatures, and so are suited to the often unpredictable British climate.

Those with limited space will find our self fertile kiwi plants hugely practical too! Our kiwi fruit plants are supplied as pot grown plants, and as climbers requiring support, can be grown in the same fashion as vines. More...

The Kiwi plant's fruit - also known as Chinese Gooseberries - were first discovered growing in southern China. But in the last century many new cultivars have been produced and subsequently acclimatised to growing conditions in Europe, and right here in the UK. Although growing under glass prevents any risk of damage to delicate plant blossom in Spring, many varieties of kiwi plant will grow happily in a warm, sunny aspect in a domestic garden, favouring well-drained soils, but disliking acidic soil conditions.

As a climber, your Kiwi plant will require support as it grows, much in the same way as a grape vine is grown. Some of our Kiwi plant varieties can reach around eight metres in length, although this can be reduced with adequate and appropriate pruning.

We have endeavoured to provide a selection of Kiwi plants that offer the most delicious tasting kiwifruits, and as such you will find that our listings include both self sterile and self fertile kiwi plants for sale. With our self sterile varieties, a male flowering plant is required to pollinate a complementary female flowering plant variety in order to produce fruit, with roughly one male Kiwi plant required for up to seven female kiwi plants. But for those with less room to spare, our self fertile varieties provide a practical space-saving solution as each single plants is able to self pollinate and produce fruits.
