Since kiwis grow very quickly, it is advisable to plant the plants on a previously made framework. As a gardener, this gives you the opportunity to influence the direction and shape of growth right from the start. If the newly planted kiwifruit are large-fruited kiwifruit varieties, the climbing support should be stable enough to withstand the weight of the fruit.
The following can be used as climbing aids:
- finished rope systems made of stainless steel wire ropes,
- Vertical wooden posts with horizontally tensioned wires,
- Wooden grids attached to the house wall or freely set up.
Tips & Tricks
Similar to grapevines, kiwi plants can be used to create a green roof over the terrace, which provides welcome shade on hot summer days.
