Did you plant your new Kiwi into the ground?
I'm not sure on your growing zone, but planting should occur after danger of frost has passed.
Wilting could be due to the plant not taking up moisture. Make sure the soil that you planting in is well draining.
If the roots are in soggy soil, they can suffer root rot.
Your Kiwi Vine also needs a full sun location.

Also, most reputable garden centers will guarantee their plants. Check your receipt and call the point of purchase.
