Hello - We live in Zone 7B. I just picked up a "Prolific" hardy kiwi and have a few questions.
info --> http: //

1) It says it is self-fertile, does anyone have experience with this? I know that normally you need a male and female. I keep finding mixed information.

2) and 3) I was going to intersperse it into my grape vines, but am considering making a new area for it. Hardy Kiwi seems much more vigorous than grapes. The grape trellis design is a single post (not a T) with three wires located in a 3ft wide strip between my driveway and the neighbor's lawn. It seems like hardy kiwi might expand beyond the 3-foot or 4-foot width of the grape-vine area as they reach for the sun and sprawl into my neighbor's yard. Any ideas? Has anyone mixed the two on the same trellis? Do hardy kiwis sprawl very wide?

Some are self fertile.
Give it it own trellis.
They don't require the same pruning as grapes.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
