Kiwi vine decor???
For Father's Day, I got my DH 3 Kiwi plants from Lowe's. I was very surprised to find out that they had a variety for zone 4! 25% off right now, about $7.50 each.
Does anyone have experience w/ them? According to the tag, they should be spaced 12-15ft apart & grow 15' wide! You must have a male & a female, and only the females bear fruit. I got 2 girls & a boy (which is what we actually have!) and told him he's getting triplets... yea, right, we're in our 50's!
I'd like some suggestions on decorative planting. I figured we have a sunny blank backside of a fence, but the tag said "moist" and hubby said it's rather dry there - wikipedia said "well-drained", I thought if I "loamed" and watered the area it might work??? Just how bushy do they get?
OR, I have a pear & an apple tree spaced just right, they're dwarf, thought I could plant the kiwis inbtwn and run wirey decor btwn them???
Hubby wants to make some arbors just before the tree line, they'd get plenty of sun morning til around 3pm. Reading, these get very heavy and need a STONG arbor.
Any special ideas for any large vines like wisteria? I'd like to keep in the "junk" decor.
