need kiwi propagation advice
I had some arguta kiwis that I cared for at my old house. I had 1 male and 2 females. After 4 years I started to get lots of fruit. The male was a slow grower and that probably was the limiting factor on the start of fruit production. I tried to move them to my new house, but after 2 years, all have died. I would like to start over. I want to start from softwood cuttings this time. I have read that this is the time of year to start. Any advice? I plan on asking for kiwi cuttings (male and female) through one of the GardenWeb forums. If you have advice on where to obtain the cuttings, I'll take that help also. I am especially fond of Ken's Red.
