Kiwi Plants Finally Moved…

I’ve rooted Kiwi from cuttings (since 2007), but didn’t really know where to plant them, so they have spent years in 1 gallon pots. I placed the pots in an empty space in one of my vegetable beds and over the years they have grown roots outside the pots and established themselves in the bed.

They were getting bigger and bigger and I had trouble accessing the middle part of that vegetable bed, so this year, I decided that they have to move!… I decided to permanently plant them into the two large blue bins behind our storage. They should get ok light there and they’ll finally not be in the way, so I can easily plant in that vegetable bed again.

I moved them (4 total plants) in a span of two days late February, before they fully awaken from dormancy… I first moved two plants into one bin. The roots of the tall ones where big!… I had to cut some, but I think the plant will be ok.

First Kiwi Plant Moved

I amended the soil with compost and fed it with general organic vegetable fertilizer and Azomite.

First and Second Kiwi Planted

I did the same with the remaining two plants… I think they will be much happier here and hopefully they’ll bare fruitĀ this year.

I have to go through my photo library and figure out the planting history of each plant, since a couple of them have lost their tags.
