I have a male and female Kiwi plant. I put them in pots hoping to plant them in the ground this fall. The one plant is doing great. The other was looking great till less than a week ago. I thought at first maybe the deer had eaten on it. All the other plants in pots in this area are doing real good. I would appreciate any help and advice.

It looks like it is still alive. If something is eating it put some fencing, or something around it. I tried to grow this plant once, and it seemed like everything liked to eat it. I finally gave up. Maybe others know more about it, or a better way to keep it safe.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
