The Q&A Archives: Kiwi

Question: I have a hardy kiwi that had lots of leaves before our recent spring frost and the leaves turned brown. I had it covered but that didn't help. Will it come back? I have straw mulch around the base.

Answer: This spring has been very difficult for plants. It will probably be okay. Be very patient waiting to see new growth again, it will have to regather energy before it can releaf. It might take until early summer. In the meantime you could topdress with some good quality compost to give it some TLC.
