kiwi “jenny” dropping flowers

Zone cardiff, uk | d.i.y.queen added on June 15, 2016 | Answered

Every year my self-pollinating kiwi "Jenny" produces many flowers, which all fall off, so I have never had any fruit. My other kiwi that I have had for about 9 years has never even flowered. Do you know why and is there anything I can do?

A Kiwi Jenny should began to produce fruit when the plant is 3 years old.

Make sure the plant is in a nice sunny location. Preferably a South or West facing wall.
Planting other flowers in the area that attract Bees may help with pollination.
Hand pollinating can help, even though the plant is a self pollinating.
