We tried with 3 plants in the west of Ireland. They didn't fruit although they grew like mad. We kept them for about 5 years before digging them up and giving up the cause. I think it was just too cold for them.

outside, in the fruit cage, should be inside i suppose but that can't be helped. they are actually flying up this year wending their way in and out of the wire mesh roof, 6ft. high and 3 ft. along the top. They have thick hairy succulent leaves, still no floweres though. Will take photo next time i'm up at the plot.
Regards,
Ian.

Put a kiwi bush into a raised bed with other fruit but it has stopped thriving. The leaves are going brown around the edges. It was thriving inside the house but you can see that it has stopped. Any ideas?
