male hardy kiwi

the female kiwi vine (michigan state) that i planted last summer died before the snow even hit, and i thought that the male kiwi was a goner for sure. much to my surprise – it’s growing! sprouting optimistic green things on branches i’d written off for kindling. go figure.

didn’t want the vine to be lonely, so purchased two kiwis of the female variety – one rossana and one cordifolia. Hoping they’ll grow to cover an eight-foot stretch of trellis.

    Yay! My hardy kiwis grew and flourished for years, then one year they all died. I’m still trying to figure out what happened! Maybe somebody ate the roots. Anyway, i too intend to plant more. And best of luck with the renovations! I’ll be waiting to hear how it turned out.
