Answer: I can think of only a few plants that would not make good container plants. Giant Sequoia is one, and Kiwi is the other! Kiwi vines are so vigorous and so heavy that they need substantial support, even as young plants. It's not unusual for kiwi vines to grow 20' to 30' long in a single season. Your new plants should be planted in the ground, spaced about 15' apart, with an arbor or fence nearby for support. I use 4"X4" lumber as a frame and string 10 gauge wire between the posts. My structure looks like a hefty clothesline. As the kiwis grow they cling to the posts and wrap themselves around the wire. The fruit hangs down for easy harvesting. Expect your plants to begin producing fruit 2-3 years after planting.
