Kiwi Solo plants will produce tasty Kiwi fruits suitable for both culinary and dessert use. Given a sunny position and something to climb, this vigorous Kiwi plant can provide masses of creamy-white flowers in June followed by heavy fruit crops in winter (around January).

A self-fertile Kiwi plant, Solo does not require a pollination partner. It also benefits from good disease resistance and is an excellent choice for the UK.

Planting Advice for Kiwi Solo Plants

Our pot grown Solo Kiwi plants can be planted at any time of year. Remove weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole (preferably in a sunny position). Dig a square hole as deep as the root mass and roughly 3x as wide. To help it establish more effectively, we suggest sprinkling root grow in the hole.

Gently loosen the plant roots and place into the planting hole. Using 50% of the original soil and 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree and ensure there is a support for the plant to grow up.

Aftercare Advice for Kiwi Solo Plants

If you’re planting in spring or summer, water the Kiwi plant well and regularly for the first few months and increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water a little.

Keep the area free of competing grass and weeds for several growing seasons.

Delivery Timescales

Most deliveries are made within a week of placing the order. All trees are carefully packed by our experienced team, with many despatched to our tried and tested couriers within 24 hours (please allow up to 10 days). There's no need to be in to receive your trees and you can request where they are left via the checkout.

There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached and mature trees (trees over 2.5m in height) because we group orders together by geographic area for specialist delivery - we will contact these customers to notify them of the delivery date and whether the delivery driver needs assistance.

Gift trees and those required by a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure, although we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre, so please make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.

The product table at the bottom of the page gives the forms and sizes available for this variety. Please note, photos are a guideline as all plants are unique. Below are definitions of terms:

Supplied Size: Height measured from the top of the pot.

Single Stem / Pruned and shaped: Classic shaped tree with a single stem that has had pruning to help create a beautiful, natural shape.

Top grafted: A height noted next to this form refers to the length of clear stem, which will not grow taller. Only the head of branches will develop. Top grafted trees do not require complicated pruning and are ideal for small spaces.

Multi Stem: A multi stem tree is has two or more stems arising from or near ground level, growing from one root system. Take care to buy a true multi-stem like all ours and not those that are 3 saplings in a pot to cheaply imitate them.

Feathered: A feathered tree has branches from the bottom of the trunk all the way up. These branches can be removed if a clear stem is required.

Bush: A plant with many stems low down, rather than one clear stem.

Climber: A plant that is a natural climber and will be delivered usually running up a bamboo cane, ready to position in the garden.

Standard Tree: A more mature tree with an upright clear stem of approximately 1.8m-2.0m (measured from the soil to the lowest branches of the crown). Standards are available in different forms relating to their girth size (circumference of the stem measured 1m above soil level), not height:

Standard  either 6-10cm or 8-10cm girth, approximately 2.5-3.0m in height
Premium Standard  10-12cm girth, approximately 3.0-3.5m in height
Heavy Standard  12-14cm girth, approximately 3.5-4.5m in height
Extra Heavy Standard 14-16cm girth approximately 4.0-6m in height
