Quick Overview on planting and caring for seedlings varieties Kiwi Carpath Straton “Valentine”

  1. Carefully remove the seedlings from the shipping carton (in order to avoid breaking of the kidneys and shoots). The optimal option: cut boxes of paper or mounting a knife at the 4 corners.
  2. In the planting hole seedling planted without extraction of peat container (with peat container). Soil at planting is not compacted. Seedling abundantly watered for the uniform ground shrinkage (watering – shower).
  3. Just when planting a sapling to protect from animals (cats, etc.) the best option – four or more pegs around the perimeter of the plant, not less than 25 cm from the plant height 0,7-1m covered with white agrotextile. This makes it possible to protect the seedling as against mechanical damage (bite) and marking of territory from cats and males.
  4. Immediately on landing defend for the first time (about one month) from direct sunlight to avoid burns leaves (any screen, bounding from direct sunlight from sunrise to sunset). Except in the case of landing in the shadow.
  5. When planting area, mulch planting hole (covering sawdust) layer of 3-4 cm.
  6. Plants Kiwi – bush-vine (grapes) are in need of support (trellis, canopy frame, etc.)
  7. Kiwi is not drought-resistant (not tolerate desiccation of the upper soil layer). Recommended timely watering.
  8. The soil in the root zone (1.5 m radius from the plant) beneficial mulch softwood sawdust.
  9. The root system develops mainly kiwi surface (bulk rospolagaetsya roots in the soil column up to 40-50 cm depth), so do not obkapyvat avoid mechanical damage. Organic feed to make the surface of the ground or under the mulch.
  10. Preferred soils: light, with a neutral to slightly acidic.
  11. In the first after landing in the ground vegetation period, seedling under favorable conditions, reaches a height of about 3 meters.
  12. Pests and diseases that damage the kiwi I have not been noticed, handling pesticides do not produce.
  13. This sort of self-pollinated by insects (bees, bumblebees, and others.). The presence of male plants pollinators is not necessary to produce a crop. The presence of other types of actinide site and theoretically possible cross-pollination on fruit quality, of course, is not affected.
  14. The first fruiting under favorable growing conditions possible for 3-4 years after planting in open ground. Kiwi fruit of the class have an average weight of about 90gram, major reaches 110 gram. Yields from the bush having a size of not less than 6 square meters (area trellis, canopy), about 20kg. A large area of plant development – provides more yield. Kiwi weakly or not fruited fruited when cutting to size less than 6 square meters.
  15. kiwi plant varieties do not recommend this shelter for the winter (insulation, laying on the ground). For his many years of experience since 1992 have not seen frost damage to plants to -28 (including in the first year after planting seedlings in the ground).
  16. Start vegetation – April-May (depending on weather conditions); flowering – May-June; ripening – October-November. Technical maturity of the fruits of this variety comes from the end of September. Fruits in the state of technical maturity and formed their collection is possible to be placed in storage. Before the sale or consumption of fresh fruits boxes should be placed on the 2nd day in a room with a temperature 25-30grad. for ripening (slightly soft fruit – ripe and usable).
  17. autumn fruits collected in low boxes can be stored until spring in a cold (storage, basement) at temperatures from 0 to + 6grad.
  18. Formation bush kiwi recommended during the emergence of shoots and until August (pruning, topping, breaking out, etc.). In the initial period of vegetation can be removed beginning rozvivatsya buds on the shoots of first and second order. Fruiting varieties of kiwi occurs on the shoots are not below the fourth-fifth order. The main fruiting shoots accounts for the previous year growth. Carving to be primarily part of the shoot, otplodonosivshie in the previous year. On the first and second year after planting encourages the greatest plant development in size and produce more shoots long-range order, by topping the growth points. The first crop of fruit-bearing plants recommends that in the initial period of budding (May-June), when it becomes evident to any shoots will bloom. On fruiting plants are at least 3-4 years of age, leaving strong shoots of the current season, the most long-range order, weak, thin – delete. To avoid any mechanical damage of plants in pozdneosenny, winter and early spring periods. Bush can generate both vertical (but not less than 2 meters) trellis, and the T-shaped trellis (and cross about 2 meters). Effectively, as well Forming kiwi horizontally (on the canopy of not less than 2 meters above the ground).
