Kiwi Vines Grown From Seed - 5 Years Old (60 Months)

How to grow a kiwi tree or vine from seed! The kiwi vines are now 60 months old (they'll turn 5 years in just about a week) and they are still doing great. In this video I'll be updating you on the vines. I went ahead and relocated 2 of them since they were starting to tangle with the other 3 in the same area. Every thing I am doing to these 9 plants is an effort to get them to flower and to test different types of pruning practices on the kiwi vines themselves. Also, I am starting to notice the mature plants struggle with either nutrients or location... I am thinking it is nutrients as the new shoots look great but as the plant focuses on new growth, the mature leaves start to exhibit signs of not having enough nitrogen available. I'll likely add a balanced fertilizer (or one more heavy in nitrogen) to see if that gives them the boost they need. It's amazing to me that despite the cold, these hardy Kiwi never flinch with going dormant during the winter months and then going crazy during the summer months! There is actually a small chance that we could see some flowers this year, although I am not holding my breath just yet... As a reminder: 1) I had trimmed the side shoots off of one of them to promote vertical growth along a guiding post to gain height. 2) I topped several of them to try to keep them lower to the ground for now to promote fatter trunks - eventually looking at letting them gain height. 3) I left some alone altogether and just let them vine like crazy. I'm learning quite a bit about these plants and I'm happy you are here to join me as we watch their journey. With kiwi, you need to have at least 1 male and 1 female plant in order to produce fruit. In fact, you only need 1 male plant for every 8-10 female plants. I have about 10 plants growing so I'm hoping that at least one is a male. I'm assuming I have at least 1 female plant. ❤ Subscribe for more Free Gardening Tips and Videos: https://goo.gl/f3D2tj Here's the link to the whole series from seeds to today: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKJSapt21HvXLhzkeCvv88Rqh27LyCKEW Thanks for watching!
