Need male pollen for Kiwi

Dan.EApril 20, 2012

I have my first ever buds (many of them...) on a 4 year old Vincent Kiwi(Actinidia chinensis, female) vine. However, my male vine is not blooming. Two questions:

1. will it work to place a handful of cut pieces of a male vine that has flowers on them... in a vase around the female vine?

2. does anyone have a compatible male vine that I could clip a few pieces off of?

The female buds are about marble sized, not sure how close they are to opening?
